VIDEO NEWS: Austerity Release Video For New Single ‘Imperialism’
Anarcho post-punks Austerity have released a music video for their new single Imperialism, made up of fan-filmed submissions.
“During this great societal pause we call lockdown, we’ve been inspired by the solidarity and sense of community that has poured out of every corner of the planet,” the band comment. “Seeing neighbours helping neighbours and communities looking out for each other has reminded us all that we are stronger together than we are alone. We wanted to celebrate that spirit of togetherness by asking our nearest and dearest to express themselves on camera, creating a montage of our collective isolation. Making it has made us feel even more connected to our surroundings and the people we love.”
“This is a special moment in history, when the wheels of capitalism have slowed down enough that we’ve found time to take stock of our society, to question the priorities of our economy and to re-assess what we value and who we hold dear,” they add. “We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to change the world…don’t let this moment slip through our fingers. We may be alone, but we are alone together. Solidarity to you all. See you on the other side!”
Austerity‘s debut album Anarcho Punk Dance Party is out now via every Man His Own Football/Quiet Backwater.
