These are pests and pain you want!
Pests are usually a pain and a nuisance. But in this case, The Pests are "The Pain."
Enough with the riddles.
One of New Orleans' longest-running post-punk bands, The Pests, are here and they are premiering "The Pain," the new video from the song that lives on A Damn Fine Mixture, with ARTISTdirect.
So one could say they are bringing "The Pain." Thanks, we'll be here all week.
"'The Pain' is one of our more serious songs. Most are personal revelations from Steve [Halprin, vocals/guitar], but 'The Pain' can be felt by anyone who has had a toxic person in their life. One day, that person will feel the pain that they have caused to others. No one will be left around to mourn when they are gone, phones will stop ringing... being selfish is a young man's game," the band told us.
That's quite a pretty powerful statement, so keep that in mind when listening to the song and watching the video.
This month, The Pests join forces with their friends Bowling for Soup to throw a punk rock party at the Southport Music Hall on June 4. To show some extra love to the city from which they hail, the band will be donating a portion of their merch booth sales to the Take a Chance Animal Rescue Group devoted to improving the life and quality of life of animals. Take a Chance is a non-profit organization based in New Orleans, La.
Good music, good cause, good video!
