Ethan 103, Navajo/Oneida punk rockers, released their official music video Punk Rock Fashion Police on April 18 and serves as a kickoff for their upcoming 5th Annual ON THE GRIND Southwest Skate Tour to New Mexico.
Here’s what the band had to say about the track:
“Punk Rock Fashion Police proves itself as a statement song in every measure as an anti-anti punk song revealing the hypocrisy built into the unwritten rules of punk fashion “standards” by people within the scene. First and foremost, the song calls out punk rockers who contradict themselves.
Punk Rock Fashion Police also speaks to the fashion industry’s tendency to cycle in and out of punk as a trendy theme expressed through stereotypical punk rock attire. When such creations turn up in designers’ magazine spreads and on runways in New York City, Paris, London and Milan, the appropriation diminishes punk’s classic conceits of politics, individualism and progressive thinking, drawing attention away from the messages punk rock aspires to convey. Neither do the exorbitant price tags on the clothing mesh with the punk rock ethos. Ethan 103 wants you to get the memo that all of this is bullshit. That memo is Punk Rock Fashion Police.”
The song, Punk Rock Fashion Police, was produced by multi-Grammy Nominee engineer/producer Ralph Patlan (Megadeth, Jamie Foxx). No word on if it will appear on an upcoming album but we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, check out the video and the band’s upcoming tour dates below.
