Tightwire (ffo: The Queers, Teenage Bottle Rocket) stream video for new single, “Six Feet Deep”

Tightwire is a Minneapolis pop-punk band that has been gracing Mid-West stages since 2016. Their debut album, “Six Feet Deep” drops this Friday, (10/16/18) on Red Scare Industries, who have played host to bands like The Lillingtons, The Copyrights and TBR. They’ve hooked-up with Dying Scene for the scoop on the band’s new title-track music video.

Six Feet Deep is a woeful love ballad… kind of, except it clocks in at a-minute-and-a-half long. It goes well with The Queers’ classic, Debra Jean, and is for anyone with a broken-hearted “DNR” tattoo.

While I can’t boast one of those, I can say that I know the feeling well, and this is easy listening music on any lonely Saturday night.  It’s old-fashioned pop-punk for wallflowers and left-overs, skeezers, steezers, and sleazers. They’ve got a few rad dates coming up with Kung-Fu Necktie, Teenage Bottle Rocket, Dillinger 4, and OWTH, to check out if they come through your town. Be sure and pick up the album when it drops on Friday and peep the first-take of Tightwire’s new video for “Six Feet Deep” with those show dates below.
