New Orlando pop-punk band Porch Coffin have just released their first music video, for the roaring track “Parasitic Freedom (Damage)”.
Porch Coffin is managed by Evan Blaine, who sharp-eyed local wrestling fans will recognize as Wolfe Taylor, and has wrestled for Mayhem over Mills, No Peace and other area Feds. Going back to old music, Blaine used to be in Bad Luck, but now Porch coffin is his main gig.
The track is alternately anthemic and very angry, while the video itself has a gritty, late-night feel that reminds us of Black Flag’s.”TV night.”
“It’s about the idea of freedom and how it’s used as a means to control people,” Blaine said in a press release about the single’s lyrical inspirations. “They’ll tell us we’re free to talk to each other while they make record profits and gain more control.”
“Parasitic Freedom (Damage”) is the first single from Porch Coffin’s recent album. self-titled debut albumavailable digitally on Bandcamp or on cassette of Juice of Mangothe Daytona label run by Matthew Jacob Randall of Crustgirls.
The quartet of Blaine, Marcus Hodgin, Joey Fields and Kyle Shepherd have no immediately scheduled shows, but will have the chance to play to a larger audience when they perform at this year’s Fest in Gainesville later this year.
