Plague Vendor have shared the video for their post-punk anthem “ISUA” CLRVYNT. Capturing the frenetic energy of Plague Vendor’s live show, “ISUA” features footage shot by a friend on the band’s recent tours.
“We went on tour with Refused and The Garden this summer, had a blast! These are some cuts of us playing ‘ISUA’ (I Stay Up Anyway),” notes Plague Vendor guitarist Jay Rogers. “Stay up, kids!”
“ISUA” appears on Plague Vendor’s sophomore album BLOODSWEAT. Earlier this year, vocalist Brandon Blaine explained the song’s meaning to Spin. “When we all lived at Com (the name of our pad), everyone would go to bed, but I would continue to stay up,” said Blaine. “I just want to enjoy people, I love company, and never want the good times to end.”
Recorded with producer and engineer Stuart Sikes (The Walkmen, Cat Power, Modest Mouse), BLOODSWEAT finds Plague Vendor expanding into new sonic territory while infusing their sound with danger and vulnerability. The album arrived as the follow-up to Plague Vendor’s 2014 debut Free To Eat, a darkly thrashing collection that clocked in under 20 minutes.
Known for their exhilarating live show, Plague Vendor got their start in a practice space in Whittier, California, in 2009. After making their name by playing endless shows around Southern California, the band quickly went from gigging at backyard parties to filling festivals with their formidable post-punk.
With their recent tours including dates with Refused, The Garden, Kim and The Created, Plague Vendor embark on their West Coast tour with Off! tonight in San Francisco.
