Phoenix hardcore outfit American Standards, has release their second music video single “Carpe Diem, Tomorrow“, which comes off their upcoming record “Anti-Melody“. In this claustrophobically dark video filmed by Jacob Reynolds (Dead Rabbits, Escape The Fate, The New Low), silhouettes of the band thrash amidst seizure-like inducing lights, capturing the passion and intensity of the song.
Vocalist Brandon Kellum commented on the video saying, “We all know the person that’s been at their job for 10 years and complains every day about it, someone who’s planed on going back to school or wants to travel but always makes excuses on why they don’t. “Carpe Diem, Tomorrow” is about getting out of your comfort zone. Being open to new experiences and ways of thinking. Moving is living. You’re not getting any younger and there will never be a “right time” so do something that scares the hell out of you every day of your life.”
“Anti-Melody” comes out April 28th and is available for preorder on iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp. Watch “Carpe, Diem, Tomorrow” here.
