Hot off the heels of a whirlwind European festival run that saw the band headline major stages in the UK, Russia, Ukraine, and Czech Republic, and ahead of the West Coast leg of their headlining tour, FRANK IERO AND THE FUTURE VIOLENTS have just released a video for their song “Great Party.” The song is a cut from their brand new record Barriers (released May 31, 2019 via UNFD). This is the second music video to be released from Barriers, following the video for lead single “Young and Doomed” earlier this year.
“Great Party” stars Cult Records (Founded by Julian Casablancas of The Strokes) signees/the faces of Gucci’s pre-fall 2019 campaign Surfbort. The video itself features FIATFV performing at a lackluster VFW hall, where the fruit punch bowl doubles as an ash tray, the questionable looking cake is a half-eaten mess, and seedy onlookers are looking for any way to inject some excitement into the night. By the time that the band takes the stage, the weirdness is amped up even further thanks to an ACME style explosive box of confetti that’s unleashed, as well as the guests becoming further unglued as the night goes on.
