Music Video: The Tosspints – “Soldiers Heart” off new album “Have You Been Drinking?”

Michigan Celtic punks The Tosspints recently released their newest album “Have You Been Drinking?” last month through East Grand Record Company. The band just published a new music video for their song, “Soldiers Heart”, which appears on the new release. Here’s what singer/songwriter Don Zuzula had to say about the track,

I chose the song because it’s a reoccurring theme in the album, and the video is based heavily on the day in the life of a vet with PTSD, the constant reminders, the flashbacks, the feeling like you don’t fit into society anymore. The alcohol is actually a symptom of the disorder, myself and a number of my friends with the disorder really struggle with most of the things that were presented in the video. The depression and the longing for going back to the last time in your life that you felt like you fit in, the combat lifestyle where everything really was black and white and you were driven by survival instinct rather than normal, rational thought and emotion, there is even an inability to have positive emotions after a while due to physical changes in the parts of the brain that create those things. I think I managed to touch on all of it.

Check out the music video here.

Rick Barton talks Boston punk scene, painting Frank Black’s house and more

“Any kind of underground original music, no matter what it is, it’s good if people get into it and follow it. It’s kind of a dying thing, you know what I mean?”

And so began our recent interview with Rick Barton, frontman of the Quincy, MA-based Continental. The band, which also features Barton’s son Stephen on bass, is getting set to hit the road for most of the second half of 2013, while somehow finding time to record a follow-up to their 2012 debut full length, “All A Man Can Do.” Barton, who may be better known from his stint as the original guitarist for the Dropkick Murphys, took some time out of his busy schedule painting houses to talk with us about what it’s like to be in a working band, and to spend six months a year on the road.

Barton was particularly engaging when discussing the concept of being in a band with your own kid. We also discuss what’s happened to the Boston punk scene, what’s happening to the FM359 project (which features Barton teaming up with Street Dogs Mike McColgan and Johnny Rioux), and what it was like to paint Frank Black’s house. It’s a pretty entertaining, enlightening read: check it out here.
