PREMIERE: Watch the The Dying Arts’ new video “Liar”

September 29, 2015

The Dying Arts‘ new EP, You Had It Coming, is out October 23rd on Culvert Records, and raucous first single “Liar” has a suitably energetic new music video, which we’re premiering below.

“This was all done in three days, with just the four of us playing together right there in the studio,” says The Dying Arts guitarist/vocalist Mike Portoghese of You Had It Coming‘s recording process. The Toronto-based group has an obvious love for classic 90’s Dischord and Subpop artists who blurred the lines between hardcore and indie, but the aggressive, chunky riffs that abound on “Liar” sound more like a noisier Hot Snakes, or a more hi-fi Lost Sounds, minus the keyboards.

Directed by Portoghese, the idea behind the video was to capture the raw, unbridled energy of the sound of a rock band no frills needed. We think they succeeded.

Check out the video for “Liar” below:
