6131 Records‘ resident bad boys in CULTURE ABUSE teamed with Noisey magazine to premiere the video for their new song “Perfect Light” from the forthcoming Spray Paint The Dog 7″, due out February 17th. The very NSFW video, made by mastermind Rob Soucy (you know, the guy that does awesome work with Azealia Banks AND DEFEATER?!), has some interesting things going on.

San Francisco Bay Area punks Culture Abuse are sharing their wild new video for“Perfect Light,” the b-side to the band’s upcoming Spray Paint The Dog 7″. Due out on February 17th via 6131 Records (pre-order), the video captures the band during a rather extravagant night on the town… filled with casual male nudity, an LA leather festival, and enough cocaine, weed, and booze for a small village. The “Perfect Light” video, which made it’s debut on Noisey, was shot and directed by Rob Soucy (Azealia Banks, The Alkaline Trio, Citizen) capturing Culture Abuse’s general “get fucked up, create, and destroy” mentality in all its visual glory.
Noisey described the mayhem, stating, “You kids will lose your shit over “Perfect Light,” and the video will make your jaws drop as our boys snort, drink, rock, get naked, join some weirdo S&M circus, and do all that crazy and fun shit all videos should have.”
Culture Abuse’s dirty noise punk isn’t all about drugs and nudity though, their music is focused and crushing, as chaotic as it is catchy, offering primitive brutality with pop (albeit rather filthy pop) infused melodies. “Perfect Light” blends elements of noise rock, post-punk, hardcore, and garage rock at it’s scuzziest together into a storm of rowdy aggression and infectious hooks, earning the band comparisons to METZ, Pissed Jeans, and Ceremony. Culture Abuse have found the perfect balance of being uncompromising, unpredictable and ultimately an undeniable force of deviant punk excess.
San Francisco Bay area band Culture Abuse are a wild pack of animals that have been stirring things up along the West Coast since Fall 2013. Their amalgamation of hardcore / punk with an almost psychedelic rock vibe is unlike anything ever heard before, feeling both vitally important and on the brink of disaster all at once.
Following the digital release of their debut EP, The Day Dreams of Nothing, 6131 Records quickly jumped at the chance to work with this incredible band. In Fall 2014, Culture Abuse recorded three new songs, two for this single (teasing an album to come later in 2015) and one included on a 12″ vinyl reissue of their debut. The songs on this Spray Paint The Dog7″, “Nicotine” and “Perfect Light”, demonstrate their ever-evolving style, moving deeper into a pop-driven aesthetic. Culture Abuse are channeling the drugged-out, melodic sounds the Bay Area delivered in the late ’60s, yet are still remarkably refreshing.
Culture Abuse’s Spray Paint The Dog 7″ will be released by 6131 Records on February 17th.
