Boy Hits Car

Of all the reunions to take place over the past few years — At the Gates, Carcass, Refused, Sanctuary, Convulse, Quicksand, etc — the regrouping of Los Angeleno quintet Boy Hits Car has got to be one of the strangest. Boy Hits Car were an odd group to begin with — not quite nu-metal, not quite alternate, not quite punk, but with elements of all of those — which might be why so many people dug ’em; they were one of those bands that never quite fit into any one scene. BHC fans reveal themselves in the unlikeliest of places; just the other day I was talking to a dude who listens to Throatplunger on the regs, and when the conversation somehow turned to Boy Hits Car he goes, “Oh yeah, that band is rad!”

Boy Hits Car announced a fall reunion tour with Exotic Animal Petting Zoo last month (dates below), and though I haven’t heard anything about them making a new record they’ve decided to release a new music video for the song “Dreams (Of Foreign Metabolic Circumstance),” from their fourth full-length album Stealing Fire, I suppose as a vehicle to help promote the tour. Peep it:
