American Pinup - "Creeper"

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

American Pinup emerged from the suburban sprawl and unsung underground music scene of Westchester County, New York and brought along an original brand of fierce, exuberant performance that is just as wild as it is charming. The indie/punk four-piece was pegged by AMP magazine as the "voice of the new decade" and combines elements of rockabilly, surf rock, punk, pop, folk, and ska to create a fresh alternative sound. Blending the DIY ethos of the punk scene with a reverence for the melody and simplicity intrinsic to pop music, American Pinup has carved out their own niche in the world of independent music.

About The Video:

It's a hallucinatory ride through time that blends a sultry retro vibe with a wild comic book punch. We shot it in front of a green screen to give it a patched-together campy sensibility. The visuals mimic structure of the song, weaving the black & white shots in the verses with the bright contemporary shots that explode into the chorus.

Motherkissers - "Aeons"

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

Motherkissers is an Italian alternative metal/hc band from Milan (Italy), formed in late 2011, with a clear idea in mind: play live, play louder and bang heads. Musical influences range from classic Deftones to Every Time I Die, jumping across a bunch of nu-metal, melodic metalcore nuances, as a perfect result of the different flavors tasted by their members Dan (Voice), John (Guitars), Teo (drums) and Api (Bass). Name "Motherkissers" reflects the relaxed and provocative personality of the four underdogs, in contrast to the stereotypical image of the genre they approach. In 2013 Motherkissers released "Lost in a paradox", EP promoted by several gigs all around Europe. In 2014 they released the debut album "Cage the water" through Memorial Records. It's a new beginning...

About The Video:

It's the story of a man who kill himself because indifference and hipocrisy also surround and drive him crazy.

Hammered Grunts - "Public Image"

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

Hammered Grunts was started in 2004, much to the dismay of neighbors and music snobs alike. The band consists of four friends dedicated to making music and being involved in the local Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR punk rock scene.

After quickly becoming a favorite in basements all over the Pacific Northwest because of their relentless and passionate stage presence, the band launched a summer tour in 2008 in which they terrorized the West Coast. The band capped off the year by releasing their first self-titled street punk album consisting of 15 original songs.

Following the success from their first tour and album release, Hammered Grunts teamed up with Portland’s local folk-punk heroes, Rum Rebellion, and recorded a split EP displaying another 6 song onslaught of energy & angst. Together, Hammered Grunts and Rum Rebellion hit the road, sharing the summer of 2009 with fans and friends gained through previous tours and word of mouth.

As of late, Hammered Grunts has developed a more thrash influenced sound that street and skate punks alike can enjoy. Enthralled by their boisterous new sound, they released the album "Street Thrash", which includes 12 tracks of brutality layered over infectious street punk energy. Ten years later, these bratty punks still write and perform with as much passion, enthusiasm, and originality as ever before.

Hammered Grunts would like to extend thanks to all of their families, friends, and fans who have supported them through the years and for the years to come!

About The Video:

"Public Image" is a 3 minute 15 second claymation music video. The video transmits a powerful message about fame and fortune, using clay as a metaphor for how an entertainer today is cultivated and "sculpted" to become the next idol for the people. Thaddeus Thompson, director and producer, creates a world filled with sleazy agents and soulless stars that milk the fawning masses of their precious money.

The music in this video was written by Portland, OR/Vancouver, WA street-thrash band Hammered Grunts.

DII - "Little Voices"

More about the band...

Artist Bio:

From three time Grammy nominated (for songs co-written and co-produced) multi-Platinum recording artist Dan Spitz, who’s sold upwards of 20 million albums (ANTHRAX), and had his song chosen by NASA’s 2012 Rover to be played on MARS alongside only nine other artists such as FRANK SINATRA and THE BEATLES, comes a complete re invention of his musical direction once again, breaking barriers never before accomplished within any music areas. DII is Dan Spitz on Weissenborn lap slide guitar and Don Chaffin on vocals.

Dan Spitz has put down his electric guitar and reinvented himself as an artist by learning this rare Weissenborn lap slide instrument played by few, and mastered by only a handful on the planet. In quiet seclusion and secrecy kept by many helping him achieve his goals, Spitz relentlessly had to un-learn old skills, to acquire a new. He has once again achieved a non genre specific music pathway changing avenue that is unique to DII, and a new era of an emotional based musical ride that could make a woman cry or a man feel empowered to achieve. DII is one powerful musical duo.

With long time musical partner, vocalist Don Chaffin administering his soulful and heart felt lyrical avenues of execution, the listener will be instantly taken on a journey so familiar of the greatest singers of all time, yet a sound from this duo is of none present, past, or can be duplicated into the future. DII’s lyrical content has the power to touch both a woman’s heart, and a man’s soul.

DII takes the blues base that heavy metal was derived from and transforms it to “A New Music For A New Era.” Being DII is non genre specific, the duo will be playing alongside bands of any and all areas of music, from the hardest of thrash metal’s best to the soulful valleys of slide guitar greats, and beyond.

DII is here to bring global awareness of Autism through music and the luxury watch arena (Dan Spitz also holds some of the highest regarded Swiss degrees in micro mechanical engineering and is a Master Watchmaker of Complications Specialist). Dan Spitz is a single father to identical twin sons who are both on the Autism spectrum and his life long goal is to help children through these avenues and enlighten the public to the word Autism. A relentless task of work ethic placed upon him and his heart to do so.

DII will be releasing a 6-song EP along with three masterpiece videos directed by Don Chaffin. A few songs have revisited Dan Spitz’ past co-writing work with Anthrax to bring forth a sound in an entirely new way, and the penned originals are an emotional walk through relationship areas and everyday life’s struggles and truth. The duo has also written a song that is radio friendly for the Autism community already being spoken of as Autism’s anthem arrived, and brings forth Mr.Spitz’ real life daily grind with his Autistic twins to the forefront of what makes this artist on a mission do what he does. He wears his heart on his sleeve for others on the spectrum and raises the bar of Autism Awareness in music once again.

About The Video:

Little Voices is a journey of the unspoken words between a parent of an Autistic child and their sibling. The love between the them that can not be put into words. It simply … IS.
