The fine folks at Don’t Panic Records and Distro just hooked Dying Scene up with Chicago street punks The Kreutzer Sonata‘s sweet new video premiere for “Feasts and Famines”. Dropping bombs in my inbox to explode on all you lucky young readers is what they’re good for, and this time is no exception. “Feasts and Famines” is off The Kreutzer Sonata’s upcoming album The Rosehill Gates and is essentially a video collage of shots from the band’s recent spring tour through the United States and Canada set to a prideful ballad of generations through entropy, resolved in the weltschmerz to expropriate a legacy of glory out of the chaos of it all. Balance and Dynamism in crust punk? I can dig it.
Visually you’re swimming through dive bars and stages to congested highways and deserted fairgrounds with a stop along the way at a pretty sweet looking skatepark somewhere. If you’re in the know and wanna give your humble, handsome writer-friend some directions please feel free to do so.
The Kreutzer Sonata has been rolling around partying and cranking out tunes since 2011. The Rosehill Gates will be their third full-length and is set to drop on June 28 with a record release show featuring The Oi! Scouts, Corrupted Youth, and Uglybones held at Chicago’s Liar’s Club to take place on July 7. Don’t Panic has teamed up with No Time Records to press 500 copies on vinyl for the occasion – 100 of which will be pinwheel pink and blue – along with a small run of cassettes as well, limited to 100 copies. Pre-orders for The Rosehill Gates are available here. Stream that new video below.
