New York hardcore legends SICK OF IT ALL have released the official music video for the song "Self Important Shithead". The track is taken from the band's twelfth studio album, "Wake The Sleeping Dragon!", which came out last November via Century Media. The follow-up to 2014's "The Last Act Of Defiance" was produced by Jerry Farley (EVERY TIME I DIE, DEMON HUNTER) over a two-and-a-half-week period at Nova Studios in Staten Island, New York and was mixed and mastered by Tue Madsen (MESHUGGAH, THE HAUNTED, MADBALL). The cover artwork was created by Ernie Parada.
The band comments: "If you're a shameless narcissist, watch out! Our new video release deals with just that type. 'Self Important Shithead' is a parody of what we've become as we portray a false image to the world with our smartphones, and is shot guerrilla style in real New York City settings while pissing off real New Yorkers. It's a 57-second blast of hardcore punk fury directed by The Jerry Farley and we're blasting all shitheads who forsake social cues for social media!"
SICK OF IT ALL will embark on a European tour in November with support from COMEBACK KID and CANCER BATS.
"Wake The Sleeping Dragon!" features guest appearances by RISE AGAINST vocalist/guitarist Tim McIlrath and HOT WATER MUSIC frontman Chuck Ragan.
