Vietcong Pornsurfers Debut “Selfdestructive” Video
April 7, 2013
On May 20th the Vietcong Pornsurfers will release their second album, ‘We Spread Diseases’, through Dangerous Rock Records. The band have released a video for “Selfdestructive”, the album’s latest single.
‘We Spread Diseases’ was recorded at Boom Town in Borlange, Sweden. 14 songs, 12 of which ended up on the album, were recorded in the Boom Room studio during seven days in August of 2012. With the opinion that all new rock productions often sound silly and harmless, the band went into the studio with the determination to record a rock album that actually sounds like rock. The sound of ‘We Spread Diseases’ has captured the aggressive punch without 20 layers of guitars in the background, no smooth edges, and the drums are meant to hurt just like real drums do. Many bands claim that they wanted to catch the raw energy from a live show, but still end up sounding like the same well-polished “hits for kids” in the studio. Vietcong Pornsurfers has captured that raw feeling, for real. All songs were recorded live with no extra layers of anything. This is how Vietcong Pornsurfers really sounds.
“I Hate Your Band”, the first single from the album, was released the February 25th both digitally and on old school 7inch vinyl. A music video for the song “Dead Track” (the side B from the digital released single) was filmed and released together with the single. The album will be available on both CD and digitally with distribution through Sound Pollution.
Until the release of the album the band will be wasting their health on the road, throughout all of Europe in their tour bus armed with deadly shark teeth, for the third time now. Except the journeys down on the continent, they have played a lot of shows all over Sweden and the rest of Scandinavia. The last summer was filled with festivals, including Peace and Love Festival (Bob Dylan, Turbonegro, Social Distortion), Getaway Rock Festival (Yngwie Malmsteen, Manowar, Suicidal Tendencies) and Rockstad: Falun (Entombed, Helloween, Sabaton), and many others.
No silly stuff, Vietcong Pornsurfers knows how to take the stage and deliver kick-ass rock tunes in tight punk style — a la Gluecifer, Deadboys and Iggy & the stooges. Visit the band at www.vietcongpornsurfers.com and www.facebook.com/VietcongPornsurfersOfficial.
