Bite Me Bambi Takes On A Hit From The Go-Gos For Its Latest Single

Bite Me Bambi took on a classic song from The Go-Gos for its latest single.

The band premiered its take on The Go-Gos’ ‘Our Lips Are Sealed‘ Tuesday. The band’s take on the timeless song stays largely true to its source material but gives it a new identity by replacing the light rock approach in the original with its ska approach. That approach actually improves on the original, even with the song being shorter by more than half a second.

Along with the song, the band also premiered a companion video. The video features the band performing its take on the song, some members enjoying time on roller skates along the way.

The band talked about taking on ‘Our Lips Are Sealed’ in a prepared statement.

“We wanted a fun summer song and have always wanted to do a Go Go’s song,” the statement reads. “We had initially planned to do the song during covid, but it got lost in the shuffle of other tunes. Terry Hall from ska legends The Specials co wrote the song with Jane Wiedlan so we thought it would be a cool one to make into a Ska song. As it turned out, we ended up recording it pretty close to the 40 year anniversary of the release date of the original, and the induction of the Go Go’s to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so we thought it was Kismet. That is the yearbook answer…Okay the real answer is:…it was a awesome song to rollerskate to..”

In other news, Bite Me Bambi is scheduled to headline the first ever Summer Sizzler next month. The festival is scheduled to take place Aug. 13 at the Garden Amp in Garden Grove, CA. Also scheduled for the event are: The Scholars, Scott Klopfenstein (ex-Reel Big Fish), The Ruffolos, and The Step Daughters. Tickets for the event are available here.

Ska band Bite Me Bambi debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘This Love Is Dead‘ Tuesday. The video is a spoof of Dick Wolf and NBC’s hit series Law & Order. It features front woman Tahlena Chikami as the murder victim caught up in a love triangle. It is up to a police investigator (played by one of her band mates) to find out who pulled the trigger and took the woman’s life. The suspects are all played by her other band mates.

The band talked about the video in a prepared statement.

“For those who don’t know, Bite Me Bambi is way into true crime,” the statement reads. “We touched on a Law & Order spoof -“Ska & Order ” during our last video Carried Away and since the new single “This Love is Dead” has a murder/crime theme we decided to revive it. Which of the suspects committed the murder? You will have to watch and find out!

‘This Love Is Dead’ is the latest single from Bite Me Bambi’s new EP Hurry Up And Wait. The EP’s body is composed of ‘This Love Is Dead’ and five other songs that Bite Me Bambi has released this year.

Of the EP, the band had the following to say in its statement:

“This collection of songs represents the origin of Bite Me Bambi,” the statement reads. “Essentially they were the first initial songs Tahlena and [guitarist] Brian [Mashburn] wrote before and while the band was forming. We feel that this collection is a good representation of where the band was in 2019-2020 and as always we are happy to put them out so the fans can have all the singles in one EP.”
