Clowns release video for “Soul For Sale”

Aussie punks Clowns have released a video for their song “Soul for Sale”. The song comes from the band’s latest release Nature/Nurture which came out earlier this summer on Fat Wreck Chords. The new video is a part of the band’s initiative to revitalize the Melbourne live music scene. With many smaller clubs and venues facing closure, Clowns went out and played five shows in smaller capacity “dive” bars. The shows helped to reignite the sense of community, as well as give the flailing bars a boost with the near capacity crowds.

The Keepin’ The Dive Alive initiative should be considered a success and the band had this to say about it: “We heard that some of these venues were facing closure and wanted to do something! The biggest highlight for me was seeing how much people loved these venues, and how much they appreciated the our efforts. You could really feel the community behind the shows and to give back to that community who have been so kind to us over the years really felt good. I wanna do it again next year but in a different city!”

Naturally the video shows a ton of live footage of the Keepin’ The Dive Alive run of shows, so check it out below.

As mentioned above Clowns released Nature/Nurture earlier this year.
