Ska-punk band Kill Lincoln is giving audiences another preview of its new album.
The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Ignorance Is Bliss‘ Thursday. The song is the second single from the band’s forthcoming album Can’t Complain. It comes less than two weeks after the band debuted the video for the album’s lead single, ‘Confession Obsession.’
Can’t Complain is scheduled for release Aug. 7 through Bad Time Records in the U.S., 1138 Records in Japan and Pookout Records in the U.K. Pre-orders are open now.
The band members filmed their respective parts to ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’ video in various locations due to restrictions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Guitarist Mike Sosinski talked about the video’s creation during a recent interview with Brooklynvegan.
“I always pictured the video for “Ignorance Is Bliss’ being a giant dance party with all our friends…but because of quarantine our options for getting together and filming were obviously a bit limited,” he said. “We wanted to make sure if we filmed ourselves it didn’t look like every other quarantine video, so we tried recording ourselves dancing and singing to the song at half speed…which was WAY harder than it seemed with such a fast song. Either way the, the raw results had us laughing our asses off so we knew the idea would stick. We had a blast making this video, and can’t wait for the inevitable dance party the next time we get to play the song live.”
The energy in the song’s musical arrangement works well with the song’s lyrical theme, which comes across as a social commentary of sorts.
