Tightwire (punk) premiere video for new song “AYL” off upcoming Red Scare comp

Are you listening?  Minneapolis pop-punk act Tightwire wants to know in their brand new track “AYL” which we’re stoked to premiere in the form of a music video for you loyal readers. Check it out along with the band’s upcoming tour dates with Masked Intruder below.

Here’s a quote from the band about the track that I couldn’t be more on the same page with:

I was sitting at my neighborhood bar yelling, “Are you listening?!” at some friends. They weren’t, so I wrote a song that has nothing to do with that situation. It speaks more on my frustration with people being unable to properly communicate with each other. Just because you don’t see eye to eye with someone doesn’t make them a bad person. Stop being a judge-y prick. Listen to each other, try to understand, and move forward from there. At the end of the day we’re all going to die, so fuck it, be pleasant to each other. Or don’t. I don’t really give a shit.

“AYL” is just one of many previously-unreleased songs to appear on “Red Scare Industries: 15 Years of Tears and Beers,” a compilation celebrating the label’s 15th anniversary. This is the first new music from Tightwire since 2018’s debut album “Six Feet Deep.”
