Jumkstars has officially declared war on the mainstream music industry.
The Swedish punk trio has fired a new musical salvo against the mainstream with the video for the title track from its most recent full-length studio recording This Means War. The video features performances from the band from throughout its recent European tour with Backyard Babies. The video can be viewed online now vie New Fury Media’s official website.
Front man Max Malmquist discussed the song in a recent interview, noting its connection not to anything political or even social but to the ways of the music industry. “Actually this song is not about war such as two countries fighting against each other, but a war against the “established” music industry,” he said. “There are so many bands and artists that consume the majority of airplay on radio and TV and it’s always the same bands. It’s only the old bands that we never give up listening to or new “promoted” bands that we generally don’t like that get played. So this song is about all the new bands and artists and their struggle. The music we really want to hear and see; A music war for new music. Good music.”
‘This Means War’ is streaming online via Soundcloud. More information on the band’s new video is available online along with all of the band’s latest news at:
