Deviates Premieres ‘The Liar’ Video; New LP Now Available

Independent punk rock band Deviates premiered the video for its latest single to kick off the weekend.

The band premiered the video for its new single, ‘The Liar’ Friday. The song is the third single from the band’s new album, Holding Out, which released today. The album has also produced the singles, ‘40 Days and 40 Nights‘ and ‘Wasted.‘

The video for ‘The Liar’ mixes footage of the band performing its new single in what looks like a warehouse setting that is well-lit by a group of lights, and the story of a young man who apparently is recollecting his friendship with another young man. The imagery is meant to seemingly translate the message in the song’s lyrical theme.

Front man Brian Barbara said of the song’s lyrical theme, “The liar only tells you what you want to hear. Don’t listen to the liar.”

The musical arrangement featured in ‘The Liar’ is much like that of the album’s other singles. The vocals and instrumentation immediately lends itself to comparison to works from the likes of Offspring and Pennywise.

In other news, The Deviates is scheduled to hold a headlining show Dec. 11 and to perform on a series of dates next month with Pennywise. Tickets for all of the shows are available here.

Deviates Takes On The Negatives Of Addiction In New Single

Independent punk rock band Deviates is giving audiences another preview of its new album.

The band premiered the album’s new single, ‘40 Days and 40 Nights‘ Tuesday. The song is the second from the band’s forthcoming album, Holding Out, which is scheduled for release Sept. 17. A limited run of translucent blood red vinyl pressings (approximately 500 copies) is scheduled for release Nov. 15.

The premiere of ’40 Days and 40 Nights’ comes less than a month after the band premiered the album’s lead single, ‘Wasted‘ and its companion video. The musical arrangement featured in the band’s new single is everything that any punk purist will appreciate with its high-energy guitar riffs and time keeping.

Front man Brian Barbara addressed the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.

“40 Days and 40 nights began to take shape twenty years ago,” he said. “The song is a true representation of Deviates. The lyrics address the ongoing struggles and losses associated with addiction and sadly, ring truer every day. Life isn’t meant to be lived alone. Despair is real. Pick up the phone.”

In other news, Deviates is scheduled to join Pennywise for a handful of live shows this fall. The bands’ dates are noted below. Tickets are available here.

Tour Dates:

10/7 – Majestic Ventura Theater – Ventura, CA (w/ Pennywise + Dead Kennedys + Slaughterhouse)

Deviates Premieres New Single, ‘Wasted,’ Video; Announces New Album Details

Courtesy: Earshot Media

Independent punk rock band Deviates released its first new music in 20 years this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘Wasted‘ and its companion video Tuesday. The song is the lead single from the band’s forth coming album, Holding Out, which is scheduled for release Sept. 17. A limited run of translucent blood red vinyl pressings (approximately 500 copies) is scheduled for release Nov. 15.

Holding Out is only the third album from Deviates. It consists of a total of seven songs.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Wasted’ instantly lends itself to comparison to works from Offspring. That is made clear through the vocals, guitar, bass, and drums collectively. No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the premiere of the song and its video.

Speaking of the video, it is a simple presentation. Meant to present a DIY style look, the video features the band performing on stage in a small club setting as the song plays over that visualization.

In other news, Deviates is scheduled to join Pennywise for a handful of live shows this fall. The bands’ dates are noted below. Tickets are available here.

Tour Dates:

10/7 – Majestic Ventura Theater – Ventura, CA (w/ Pennywise + Dead Kennedys + Slaughterhouse)

10/8 – The Majestic Ventura Theater – Ventura, CA (w/ Pennywise + Strung Out + The Line) (SOLD OUT)

10/9 – Fremont Theatre – San Luis Obispo, CA (w/ Pennywise + The Line)

11/5– SOMA – San Diego CA (w/ Pennywise + Strung Out + Urethane)
