Punk super-group OFF! have unleashed an accompanying music video to the track 'Wiped Out' to mark their triumphant return. After a string of extremely well received EPs over the last few years, the group compromising of former Circle Jerks and Black Flag singer Keith Morris, Burning Brides frontman Dimitri Coats, Redd Kross bassist Steven Shane McDonald and Mario Rubalcaba of Rockets From The Crypt/Hot Snakes fame show us all that the classic punk ethic that many though was dead and buried is still alive and kicking.
Their debut album, OFF!, will exhibit the same raw, high intensity style listeners will have become familiar with, not only with their string of EPs, but also with the highly influential punk movements of the late 70's and 80's - an era where most of the band hail from. Their new album will look to build upon the success and many accolades they have already received from the likes of The Guardian, Pitchfork and Kerrang since their recent incarnation. The group will release their self-titled, first proper full-length album on May 7th via Vice Records and will be undertaking a fairly thorough tour in the summer, hitting up many a festival and UK venue along the way.
