KEEP TRASH TALK AWAY FROM THE #OCCUPYWALLSTREET PROTESTS

180

Sacramento, CA hardcore band Trash Talk have a new EP entitled Awake due out next week (pre-order here), and what I’ve heard from it so far is fucking excellent, and a worthy successor to last year’s Eyes & Nines. Even cooler than the tracks, perhaps, are the well-done music videos for two of the cuts, “Awake” and “Burn Alive.” The latter of these just premiered this week, and is above for your viewing pleasure.

Or, perhaps, displeasure. The short clip opens with the aftermath of police brutality against what appears to be a group of passionate, but presumably peaceful, protesters. What follows is a violent vengeful response that hits a bit close to home, given the way the New York Police Department has been treating the Occupy Wall Street protesters over the past couple weeks. I’m actually heading down there today to march in solidarity with those occupying Zuccotti Park. I’ll be the guy in the MetalSucks t-shirt.
