Philly hardcore mob SOUL GLO have just unveiled a first video from their forthcoming album.
The complexly titled ‘Jump!! (Or Get Jumped!!!)((by the future))’ is the first single to be taken from the band’s fourth album Disapora Problems, which is due out in March.
“Essentially the video makes fun of the people who have asked our drummer what it’s like being the only white member of the band, playing upon the presumption that we aren’t actually friends and have TJ in the band just to be able to bully them,” explains singer Pierce Jordan. “A lot of the gags in the video largely references the movie Whiplash with J.K. Simmons and Miles Teller, which is about a young drummer and his abusive mentor. Toward the end of the video we throw a Roots reference in there to further explore the idea of ‘reverse racism’ which really is only ever just a persecution fantasy that exists in the minds of white people.”
Diaspora Problems is due for release on 25 March through Epitaph. Pre-order it here.
