Spinner has premiered the new video for Teenage Bottlerocket‘s song “Headbanger” taken from their newest release on Fat Wreck Chords, Freak Out!. The video was filmed in Fort Collins in Brandon Carlisle’s backyard with a cast of misfits from around the Colorado scene including Magic Cyclops. Damn this is funny! Check out full Spinner release HERE.
Kody from Teenage Bottlerocket had this to say about the song:
“Somewhere in Texas lives a man with a gift. I never met him but a good friend relayed the story to me,” guitarist Kody Templeman tells Spinner. “It was at a sparsely attended heavy metal show where he saw a dude head banging so fast that he was in danger of snapping his own neck! He told me, ‘I thought he was going to give himself a concussion’ and ‘it couldn’t have been good for his brain.’”
“I could tell by the way he told his story that he had been mildly disturbed yet fascinated by the whole fiasco,” the guitarist continues. “I thought to myself, If a single man had stirred up these unsettling emotions in my buddy, then an entire house party full of these metal heads would have surely driven him to the edge of sanity. So armed with the knowledge I had attained in my youth from headbangers ball, I set out to write this tale of the breached heavy metal underground. The result is the song/video you see here. Listen and watch if you dare!”
Teenage Bottlerocket released Freak Out! on July 3rd and you can still get the album at all the normal locations including at the Fat Wreck store HERE. Also they are currently on tour with The Dopamines, so check out those dates HERE.
