1 min read

Just in time before embarking on a tour with FOTOCRIME (a long-awaited European tour originally scheduled for 2020), Parisian post-punk / dark-punk band BLEAKNESS are extremely happy to unveil a video for the song ‘Rush Into The Night’. Watch above and check out their previous single “Dancing With Darkness” HERE.

This new video is an amazing piece of stop motion, beautifully crafted by Ugo Vittu of La Mouliche Production & Scalpel Productions. It’s a wonderful journey and a call for a social revolution against an oppressive economic system that makes us run into a concrete wall.

Rush Into The Night features Ryan Patterson of Fotocrime playing saxophone. With this song, Bleakness continues to walk the line between hook-laden anarcho-inflected hardcore punk and the darker shadows of post-punk and deathrock. The lyrics are a desperate call to slow down in a world where everyone is enslaved by a frenetic pace and caught up in the daily grind.

Rush Into The Night is from their last album ‘Life At A Standstill’ released in June on Destructure in France, Sabotage in Germany, Batcave Production in Poland and most recently released in North America on A la Carte Records and Future Discos Ltd.


Bleakness recently launched an online merch store on Shirt Killer with several new t-shirt designs.
