WATCH SPOOKYLAND’S NEW VIDEO FOR ‘ROCK AND ROLL WEAKLING’
Spookyland’s second single and title track from their debut EP, Rock and Roll Weakling had it’s explosive video premiere in the USA yesterday on influential music blog Noisey.
In the video, Marcus Gordon from the band goes head to head with World Super Cruiserweight boxing champion Steve McKinnon…check it out to see who takes the title. The energy and fury is a marked change of pace from the torrid story of unrequited love seen in his debut video clip for ‘Silly Fucking Thing’.
Fresh from two blistering live sets at BIGSOUND in Brisbane over the past two nights (check out a review here) and on the eve of another set at Boney in Melbourne tonight, this video introduces Spookyland to US audiences and marks them as a worldwide act to watch… and not one to take on in the boxing ring!
Currently in the midst of their national EP tour (remaining date are listed below), the video really heats things up for the scorching storytellers who’ve recently signed major deals with internationals, Play It Again Sam (UK/Europe) and Canvasback (USA).
In October Spookyland will be heading overseas to perform dates in Los Angeles, New York, including CMJ, and then onto London and Europe, expanding the near feverous following of this rock and roll weakling.
2014 has been a year to remember for Spookyand with the first two singles from the EP, ‘Silly Fucking Thing’ and ‘Rock and Roll Weakling’ receiving love from Pitchfork, Triple J, AirIt, NME, and many more. They recently supported local heroes Gang of Youths, and Velociraptor on various dates and are ready to show audiences around the country what a headlining tour with them is all about.
