Public Phone School, the chaotic hardcore duo, has unveiled their long-awaited video for the track ‘The Write to Bear Claws‘ off their debut self-titled album released on June 2, 2023, via Mutual Skies. We are thrilled to present the exclusive premiere of this electrifying blend of ’90s Nickelodeon nostalgia and synth-punk.
The video, dripping in blood-red themes, captures the fear of being bitten by a bear—an embodiment of the track’s lyrical content. Crafted by Hypnotize Inc., a good friend of the band, it strikes a perfect balance between nostalgic humor and intense hardcore aesthetics.
Public Phone School’s debut offering is a high-voltage amalgamation of nintendocore, electronic synth-punk, and post-hardcore, heavily inspired by acts such as the Locust, Arab on Radar, and Assfactor 4.
This wild mix of genres serves as a relentless reminder of the sonic violence and rebellious energy that characterized a bygone era of hardcore music.
The 12-minute album, which has been in the works off and on for nearly six years, signals the revival of the iconic white-belt hardcore.
While Public Phone School has not yet confirmed any tour dates, the band hints at potential shows with the vocalist later this year or in 2024.
They are also in the early stages of a new record, making it clear that this is only the beginning for this electrifying duo.
Buckle up and enjoy the ride.
