London queercore punks SHOOTING DAGGERS have a brand new video which they're premiering exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

'Smug' is taken from the trio's debut album Love & Rage, which is due out on 16 February through New Heavy Sounds.

"'Smug' [is] about the hierarchy of the music scene and how important it is to go back to your roots and never forget where you came from/started," they say. "For this reason in the video we wanted to highlight our little community and our favourite spots in SE London."

The fast-rising band have made giant strides since releasing their debut EP last year, going on to open for Amyl & the sniffers and appear at Desertfest. The album was recorded with producer/engineer Wayne Adams (Pussycat & The Dirty Johnsons, Skinny Girl Diet, Death Pedals) at Haggerston's Bear Bites Horse Studios. 



Love & Rage is available to pre-order physically now from Bandcamp and Cargo, and digitally here.

The trio play an instore at London's Rough Trade East on 22 February before heading round the UK with US hardcore mob Spaced. Catch them at...

29.3 Manchester Punk Fest
30.3 The Exchange, Bristol
31.3 The Hobbit, Southampton
01.4 The Hope and Ruin, Brighton
02.4 New Cross Inn, London


You can read a new interview with the band in the next edition of Vive Le Rock, out 26 January!
