Today, the band reveals their new visualizer for awesome new track “Myself”, which can be checked out below.
The LP follows Last, (June 2021), Summer (April 2020) and Broke Shit Demos (October 2020).
RID OF ME is Itarya Rosenberg, Mike McGinnis, Ruben Polo & Mike Howard.
“”Myself” was filmed at our drummer, Mike Howard’s place (where we practice), my apt, the streets of Kensington and Port Richmond.” – says the band’s Itarya Rosenberg.
“We asked my brother, who is one of the most talented people in the world, to film / create for us. He uses this really cool analog video processor – has no idea who made / where it is from, but found it and has put to crazy good use – and filmed on a vhs camcorder. We kind of left to interpretation to him but were interested in the treated vibe.”
