THE MISTAKES have released their second video and digital single from their fabulous forthcoming album A Good Hill To Die On, out later this year on Time & Matter Recordings.
Filmed in and around their home town of Poole in Dorset, 'Heathens' is a pulsating punk paean to the energising, life-affirming adrenaline rush which musicians and fans alike get from experiencing a live punk gig.
Lead singer Ross Sutcliffe enthuses, “There’s no better feeling in the world than a truly electrifying performance, whether you’re the one delivering it or the one watching it…There’s a real lack of genuine things to celebrate these days, but live music certainly remains one…”
Guitarist Shane Creech is equally enthusiastic about the visual accompaniment to the song, revealing “this is a celebration of exactly that! The feeling and the atmosphere of live shows is pretty hard to describe. Whether it's small club shows or bigger festival appearances, headline gigs or supporting other bands where you see people react to you for the first time, it's never boring and it's always different. Playing live is easily the very best part of being in a punk band and most probably the best thing in the world. We've filmed it with AJ Davies who comes from our little seaside resort town too so there's a lot of shots of where we live smashed together with some live footage plus Lewis and Gould skateboarding…“
'Heathens’ is available now on all the usual digital platforms and you can listen and find out more via their Linktree.
