Brendan Kelly of the Lawrence Arms releases Nihilist Arby’s video

This might be the most bizarre story I’ve personally covered on Dying Scene.

The AV Club recently released a video sent to them, supposedly from the Twitter account, that shows Brendan Kelly of The Lawrence Arms leading similar nihilist philosophies and eating Arby’s.

Yotam Ben Horin (Useless ID) releases music video for “Sad”

Yotam Ben Horin, front-man of Israeli pop-punk act Useless ID, has just released a music video for “Sad”, the second track off his brand new solo album “Distant Lover”, and we’re very pleased to be premiering it for you below.

Regarding the making of the video Yotam had this to say:

“During my time in Hollywood in between 2 tours, I found myself in a house with Israeli actors and directors whom I’m friends with from back in the day. I stayed over their house for a few days and left them a copy of my solo album Distant lover and headed out to tour with The Ataris, when I returned for a day. Ian Fisher the director told me he had an idea for “Sad” the second song off the album and that we should shoot it once I’m back from my next 3 week tour. Finished with tour, on the day of the video, I got rid of my tour beard and met my good friend Joe Escalante and the Kung fu records family for some paddle boarding in Huntington beach. I literally headed from there back to LA tried to beat traffic and once 8 pm hit, Ian and Gev said “Action”! I always felt this was the strongest song of the album and I’m happy these wonderful people had a vision and brought it to life.”

“Distant Lover” is out now on Hardline Entertainment.

Louise Distras to team with Justice Now to benefit women in prison; get a test-press copy of new album “Dreams From The Factory Floor”

Wakefield, UK punk singer/songwriter Louise Distras just released her brand new, debut full-length album “Dreams From The Factory Floor”, this past Tuesday through Pirates Press Records, and is getting ready to embark on a June/July US tour (view dates here).

Distras recently teamed up with Oakland-based Justice Now, which is coordinating an art project with women in prison, who will create illustrations for her songs “The Hand You Hold” and “Love Me The Way I Am”. The artwork will be displayed at various events throughout the year, and Distras has given up 10 ‘test press’ copies of her new album to benefit the cause. The copies can be yours during a silent auction on eBay – details of which will be announced soon on Justice Now’s and Distra’s websites and Facebook pages. Here’s what Louise had to say about the partnership,

I am proud to support Justice Now in the fight against the systemic abuses of women, and look forward to promoting their message of equality, security, liberty, integrity, and dignity for all on my upcoming US tour.

Justice Now partners with people in women’s prisons and local communities harmed by policing and imprisonment, to challenge violence and human rights abuses. They partner with people in women’s prisons because they understand state and interpersonal violence – often being survivors of both. Their work highlights ideas and strategies of women in prison to challenge the current reliance on policing and prisons, using popular education, training, theatre, music, art, and community organizing to create a vision of a safe, compassionate world without prisons.
