Boston’s ska infused punk act Stray Bullets are running a special “Black Friday Sale” on their new album “Ghost Town Rockers” in which 100% of the proceeds will be used to provide warm clothes to the homeless.  Read what the band has to say about it below and purchase/stream the album on bandcamp.

Ok, check it out: Earlier this month, the City of Boston closed the Long Island Bridge, the only means of connecting Long Island to the mainland. Long Island is the home to over 20 social service programs, including a homeless shelter. What this means is that that this not only leaves over 400 homeless people out in the cold this winter, but also denies staff access to anything and everything on the island that could in any way help these people. So here’s the pitch: from Black Friday through Cyber Monday, we’re selling our new record for 43% ON…what’s 43% on mean, you ask? What this means, is that our album, which normally goes for $7, will be $10, for FOUR DAYS ONLY! ACT NOW! What this also means is that 100% OF SALES OVER THESE FOUR DAYS WILL GO TOWARDS PURCHASING NEW WARM SOCKS, HATS, COATS, AND GLOVES FOR THIS NEWLY DISPLACED HOMELESS POPULATION. Our label, Dying Scene Records (who are lovely for letting us do this), suggested selling the album for $5 in order to generate sales, but we decided that due to our general feelings about Black Friday’s consumerist crap culture, as well as our questionable faith in humanity, we would up the price instead. So, while you’re camped out outside Walmart waiting on that flat screen TV shoddily built by child labor that doesn’t have all its parts, or between fistfights at Toys’R'Us over that last Dayglo Barbie, click the link and buy a copy (hell, buy two) of our album. Already own it? Give it as a gift. And please, share this post. After all, this is the season of giving, right?

Happy Holidays, stay warm out there.

XOXO,
Stray Bullets

Boston’s ska infused punk act Stray Bullets have premiered a music video for the first song off their new album “Ghost Town Rockers.”  The track is titled “Knife For The Pusherman,” and singer Jon Cauztik explains a bit about its inspiration and the making of the video:

“So, full disclosure, this isn’t a “new” song, per se…I wrote it around the time that Stray Bullets were sort of in the process of breaking up like ten or so years ago…the backstory is that I worked as a bike messenger for a long time, and on one of my daily routes I would see this scummy looking dude who hung out down the block from this methadone clinic near North Station and would deal to the addicts who were heading there trying to get clean…gotta admire his business acumen, but the fact that he was preying on these people and exploiting their weaknesses always disgusted me every time I saw him…like many of us, I’ve lost people to addiction, and in my mind he sort of became the scapegoat for all of that, so I started hatching a plan to roll up to him under the guise of copping, and then stab him…luckily for both of us, I came around to the realization that getting rid of one shitty drug dealer wasn’t gonna fix the problem, so premeditated murder became this song instead.

We shot the video over a couple of days in the beginning of August…my old high school friend Shane, who works as a filmmaker in New York, drove up for the weekend and shot and directed it (and edited, and edited, and edited)…we enlisted our friend Richie, my wife Becky, and our boys Derek, Adam, Tanzi, and Kory from the awesome punk band OC45 as actors, and shot the narrative stuff all around downtown Boston…my buddy and former coworker Brian Fresh gaff taped a couple of GoPros to his bike to film the traffic scenes…interesting bit of trivia, while we were shooting the throat cutting scene behind my old office in Chinatown, a dude rode by and asked us if we were recreating the murder that happened in that alley a couple of nights before…so there you have it, Knife For The Pusherman.”

Watch the video below.
