Texas Hippie Coalition Debuts ‘Moonshine’ Video

Courtesy: entertainment one

Texas Hippie Coalition debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Moonshine,’ Thursday.  The song is taken from the band’s brand new album High in the Saddle.  The video follows a man who is tracked down by a group of women out for vengeance for something very bad that he did.

The man is found by the women at a dive bar where the band is performing its new song on stage.  From there, the band takes its performance to a more natural setting, accompanied by those women.

THC front man Big Dad Ritch talked about the video in a recent interview.

“I’ve always wanted to make a Quentin Tarantino type video, flashing forward and back, grainy and sexy like an old B movie; grindhouse style,” he said.  “That’s the direction we took with the video.”

Ritch went on to talk about the song’s lyrical theme in that interview.

“Some men refer to their lady as the light of their life, their sweet sunshine,” Ritch said.  “My being a man of the darkness, a lord of the night, I do all my dirty deeds under the moonlight.  I call my sweet thang my MOONSHINE.”

Texas Hippie Coalition is wrapping the current North American leg of its tour in support of High in The Saddle.  The band has a trio of shows in the Northeast this weekend and will head south next week, with shows in Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee planned on the band’s tour schedule.

The band’s current tour dates are noted below.  Tickets for the rest of the tour’s shows are available here.

Pop Evil Wants Audiences To ‘Be Legendary’

Pop Evil debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band premiered the video for its new single ‘Be Legendary‘ on Thursday.  The video follows childhood versions of the band’s members as they face a pair of bullies who took every chance to make the then young friends miserable.  Eventually the group stands up to the bullies before the video flashes forward to the band looking back on the site of that face-off as the song ends.

Courtesy: Entertainment One

Directed by Columbia Tatone, who also directed the band’s videos for ‘A Crime to Remember,’ ‘Colors Bleed‘ and ‘Waking Lions,’ the video illustrates the song’s lyrical theme, which he discussed in a recent interview.

“This story is for the underdogs,” Tatone said.  “It’s about friendship and togetherness.  A reminder that although life doesn’t always ‘play fair,’ know that our trials are a gift as you build sustaining character, discovering what you’re indeed made of and what you are made for as you earn the victory on the climb back up.”

Pop evil front man Leigh Kakaty expanded on Tatone’s comments.

“When we were first writing this song, it started with this addictive yet hypnotic guitar riff,” Kakaty said.  “Suddenly, I could see our friends coming together as one.  I just felt like this was going to be a great opportunity to write an anthemic type of lyrical song that could possibly motivate people.  Now we see all our fans posting on social media how this song motivates them in their daily lives.  Plus, to see how passionate they are whenever they hear us perform it live.  Time will tell just how big this song can become.”

‘Be Legendary’ is taken from the band’s self-titled 2018 album, which was released via Entertainment One. Pop Evil just wrapped the North American leg of its tour in support of the album with veteran comedian Don Jamieson..

With the North American leg of its tour done, the band will head to Europe next week for a 10-date run there.  From there, the band will take a month off to rest and recharge before heading down under for a series of dates across Australia from Apr. 4 to Apr. 7.

Once the band winds down its European and Australian runs, it will return to the U.S. for another run from Apr. 10-20.  The band’s current schedule is noted below.

Pop Evil has released more new music from its latest album.

The band debuted the video for its latest single ‘A Crime To Remember‘ this week.  Directed by Columbia Tatone, the video is meant to illustrate the song’s message of the importance of unity.  Front man Leigh Kakaty explained in a recent interview, saying the world needs to come together, adding that Tatone’s treatment did an exceptional job of delivering that message.

“Columbia has delivered what we feel is the most powerful video to date for Pop Evil,” Kakaty said.  “The concept keeps an open book storyline on how human beings view the world at the moment.  Our hope is to raise awareness that it’s time for all of us to come together and be united.”

A Crime To Remember‘ is the third single to be released from Pop Evil’s recently released self-titled album.  ‘Waking Lions‘ and ‘Colors Bleed‘ are the album’s other two current singles.
