Sick Of It All Debuts ‘Paper Tiger’ Quarantine Performance Video

Veteran punk band Sick Of It All continued its live quarantine sessions series this week.

The band debuted its quarantine performance of its song ‘Paper Tiger‘ Tuesday. The performance is the third from the band, following the premiere of its performances of its songs ‘The Bland Within‘ and ‘Alone.’ ‘Paper Tiger’ was originally featured in the band’s 2003 album Life on the Ropes.

Sick Of It All drummer Armand Majidi talked about the album and song in a prepared statement.

“Going back to a much overlooked 2003 album which has a type of cult appeal to a lot of our fans, we resurrect “Paper Tiger” for the third release in our series of Quarantine Jams,” he said. “We’re convinced it’ll remind you that it’s a caustic punk anthem about all the phonies who only flirt with this music just for fashion. We’re not letting this go – we’re calling em out,”

Sick Of It All Debuts ‘Bull’s Anthem’ Video

Courtesy: Century Media Records/Fat Wreck Chords

Veteran punk band Sick of it All debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Bull’s Anthem‘ Thursday.  The song is the latest single from the band’s 2018 album Wake The Sleeping Dragon.  The song’s musical arrangement is everything that audiences have come to expect from the band, giving listeners an ample, upbeat composition that despite its length leaves listeners fulfilled.

The song’s lyrical theme will put just as much of a smile on audiences’ faces, with its proudly defiant statement.  The band sings at one point in the song, “Enter with your pride and sin/Exit in humility/We will cheer the bull’s success/Nothing more, nothing less.”  At another point, the song finds the band singing, “If you want blood/Come get your fill/The matatdor’s is sure to spill/As long as we are still breathing.”  This metaphorical language is used to deliver a message of perseverance and never giving up no matter the circumstances. It is a message from which everyone can benefit in hearing.

The video features the band’s fans, friends and family singing along to the song by themselves in a nonstop collage of videos. The band talked about the video in a collective statement.

“Getting all our fans and friends involved in the making of this video for ‘Bull’s Anthem’ was an absolute blast,” the statement reads.  “We had so much fun going through all the submissions, piecing it together, and being able to bring some much needed laughter into all of our lives during these crazy times. It’s amazing to see so many people united via our music, from all over the world, and joining us in spreading a good responsible message. We want to thank Tim from Rise Against, Chuck from Hot Water Music and the hundreds of participants, for making this happen, and we want to thank you for watching and sharing this video. It’s US vs Them and the time for revolution has come! Support, love and take care of each other.”

‘Bull’s Anthem’ is just one of the singles that Wake The Sleeping Dragon has spawned.  It also generated the singles: ‘Wake The Sleeping Dragon, ‘That Crazy  White Boy S***,’ ‘Inner Vision,’ ‘The Snake,’ and ‘Self Important S***head.’  Wake the Sleeping Dragon is available to stream and download here.

Body Count Reminds Audiences That Racism Is Real, But ‘No Lives Matter’ With Single’s Re-Issue

Courtesy : Century Media Records

In the wake of recent police-involved deaths across America, Body Count has renewed its call for action by reminding audiences of a key topic.

The band released the radio edit of its 2017 song ‘No Lives Matter‘ Wednesday.  The song reminds audiences that the matter of police violence is not about skin color, but more about money.  Front man Ice-T even notes in the song’s opening verse, “Honestly it ain’t just black/It’s yellow, it’s brown, it’s red/It’s anyone who ain’t got cash/Poor whites/That they call trash/They can’t f*** with us/Once you realize/We’re all on the same side/They can’t/Split us up/And let ’em prosper off the divide.”

He goes on to note that “racism is real/But not it” and that “right now/It’s them against us.”

‘No Lives Matter’ is featured in Body Count’s 2017 album Bloodlust.

Century Media Records Director Philipp Schulte discussed during a recent interview, the decision to re-release the song amid ongoing tensions between people and the police.

“As a company we felt it was necessary to release this single as a way to actively participate in the change that is needed to combat police brutality and racism,” he said.  “It is a first step in doing our part to inspire unity and transformation.”

The re-release of ‘No Lives Matter’ comes less than a month after the band debuted the video for its latest single ‘Point The Finger‘ from its latest album Carnivore.

These songs are not the only times that Ice-T has taken on the law enforcement community.  He rose to fame with Body Count in 1992 with the song ‘Cop Killer,’ which was itself another song about police brutality, much as with this song.  The song brought to the fore, the issue of censorship in music while also bringing increased attention to the hot-button topic.

Body Count Debuts ‘Point The Finger’ Video

Courtesy: Red Distribution/Century Media Records

Body Count is taking on the issue of police shootings in its latest single and video.

The band debuted the video for its single ‘Point The Finger‘ Tuesday.  The song is featured on the band’s album Carnivore, which was released in March through Century Media Records.

The single’s video features the band’s members and special guest vocalist Riley Gale (Power Trip) recording their respective parts for the song from their homes as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The song’s arrangement is a heavy, hardcore style presentation for which Body Count has come to be known over the years. The song’s lyrical theme takes on the controversy of police shooting citizens, arguing along the way that the shootings are unjustified and are murderous.  Front man Ice-T goes so far as to call the law enforcement community a gang in itself, saying, “The f****** badge is the biggest gang.”

He adds in the song’s chorus, “They shoot first/And ask questions last/And then they point the finger at you,” making a clear statement about his feelings about police actions.  As the song nears its end, Ice-T additionally asks, “How may more innocent people and kids gotta get killed by these police, man?/And then it’s always the victim’s fault/Such f****** b******.”

This song is not the first time that Ice-T has taken on the law enforcement community.  He rose to fame with Body Count in 1992 with the song ‘Cop Killer,’ which was itself another song about police brutality, much as with this song.  The song brought to the fore, the issue of censorship in music while also bringing increased attention to the hot-button topic.

Carnivore is available now on a variety of platforms, all of which are noted below.  It is also available to stream and download here.

 

  • Ltd. Deluxe 2CD Box Set (incl. bonus tracks, beanie, metallic logo pin, poster & instrumental CD)
