Poison Idea gets uncomfortably political in new music video

So here’s something I’m genuinely conflicted about. Portland hardcore punks Poison Idea have just released a new music video for their track “Calling All Ghosts”, wherein one of the band’s members is kidnapped and brainwashed into pulling a Travis Bickle and assassinating Donald Trump. On a the one hand, part of me is always a little nervous when a music video blatantly calls for violence (especially in these times). That said, there is something soothing about seeing Trump’s goonish facade  through the lens of a sniper scope.

Along with the video, Poison Idea also released a series of upcoming tour dates that will see the band traveling throughout California, later this month. Check out both the video and the tour dates below.

Tour Dates

Jul 14 The Garage -Ventura, CA
Jul 15 The Yost Theatre -Santa Ana, CA
Jul 16 Brick By Brick -San Diego, CA
Jul 17 The Roxy -Hollywood, CA
