Music Video: Emmer Effer – “Two Timer”

emmer efferLos Angeles based punk act Emmer Effer have released a music video for their track “Two Timer” from the band’s forthcoming album From the Bottom Down, which is scheduled to be released through Felony Records. on September 1st.

Emmer Effer bassist Adam Ruseling comments on the song:

As a band and where all four of us are in our lives, I feel like ‘Two-Timer,’ lyrically speaking, is a song we can all relate to. It’s dark, and in some ways, it’s sad, but most of all, it’s very real. Musically, I remember hearing it for the first time after we recorded on a rough mix that Ian Petersen gave us and thinking, ‘Holy shit, that’s us!’ As for the video, Steve Guerrero and Burning Rose Studios took that small vision and has created a video that speaks so appropriately to this song. Steve also did our …Of the People video last year and we can’t thank him enough.”

Check out the video below.

The band’s debut EP “The People Are The Answer,” was released in  2016 through Felony Records.

General News
Dan from Much The Same (skate punk, Chicago) diagnosed with cancer

Dan O’Gorman, guitarist and vocalist for beloved skate punk band Much The Same has been diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer. According to a Facebook status from the band, he will be starting chemotherapy in September and will be undergoing surgery at a later, unspecified date. Whilst words from the Much The Same camp are ones of optimism, such medical procedures do not come cheap and donations towards the cost of Dan’s care are being accepted via a dedicated GoFundMe page. Below is an excerpt from the band’s statement on the matter: 

 

The salary of a high school teacher / punk rocker isn’t terribly helpful in situations like this… Thanks in advance for supporting Dan in whatever way you’re able. Please let him know you’re rooting for him.

 

Naturally, Dan will be unable to make the South American tour dates scheduled with Face to Face this October, and as such Much The Same have recruited John Feliciano to fill in on guitar duties. In addition to this tour, Much The Same have been making good progress towards a new album, largely penned by Dan himself. They hope to continue to work on this as and when Dan’s health allows his further contributions.
