Southern Californian punk/hardcore quartet, Obliterations, have released their official video for “Mind Ain’t Right,”. Hailing from their impending debut, Poison Everything, the video strikes just a month ahead of the album’s release through Southern Lord
Obliterations’ “Mind Ain’t Right” video was shot and directed by photographer Rick Rodney, of LA-based hardcore band Strife, and edited by Zach Marshall. Built from photos taken on black and white 35mm film at a local show the legendary Hollywood haunt The Kibitz Room, hosted by notable skateboard stalwart Tino Razo and the infamous Supreme Skate Shop, Rodney captured the band in its inherent environment of absolute mayhem and chaos, after which he and Marshall decided that the set would make the perfect video. Setting the photos to the breakneck pace of the opening track from Poison Everything, “Mind Ain’t Right” is Obliterations’ first video to actually feature the band. As the video details, the night turned to a thrashing mess of bodies; something one must expect when seeing the band in their natural live setting.
Obliterations brings current and ex-members of Black Mountain, Saviours, Night Horse and more together to create a mangled, modernised amalgamation of The Stooges, MC5, Laughing Hyenas, Black Flag and Poison Idea. Recorded with producer Chris Owens (Lords, Coliseum, Young Widows) at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 in only three days, mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire, Black Breath) at God City Studio, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Tragedy, Integrity, Sleep) at Audiosiege, the end result of Poison Everything is a thirteen-song, twenty-nine-minute record full of raw brutality, darkness and aggression, weaving its way through the annals of punk and hardcore, while still sounding fresh and vital. The blueprint isn’t the point here, it’s the results. The sound is abrasive and raw, driving and aggressive, and fully infectious.
Poison Everything shall be released on Southern Lord on October 13th. Obliterations continue to expand their upcoming tour itinerary with new locations confirmed in the UK and Europe. See below for the most recent updates.
