The 1865 Share New Video for “Get Out”

The 1865’s video for their single “Get Out”, out today via The FADER, uses the band’s signature punk influence along with shocking images to bring weight to the message of the song. The name of the band itself derives from America post the 1865 Emancipation and the intention of their music is to stir meaningful conversation surrounding the political climate of modern America – this video displays exactly that. True to the purpose of punk, The 1865 shouts an important message through heavy guitar riffs and deadpan lyrics. Portraying a combination of disturbing cartoon and real life black face clips, the video is an ode  to Jordan Peele’s debut film and political commentary Get OutThe 1865 aren’t afraid to make their opinions known and their video for “Get Out” is a powerful reminder to wake up – full of “RAGE, JOY, SADNESS, MELANCHOLY, SOME HUMOR AND LOTS OF THRASHING.” The 1865’s social justice motivated album Don’t Tread on We!

With a departure from Mass Appeal’s typical hip-hop sound, The 1865 describe themselves as “Bad Brains meets Foo Fighters in a black woman’s hair salon for a cup of tea.” Formed in 2017 by musician/filmmaker Sacha Jenkins (The White Mandingos, The Wilding Incident), The 1865 came to life when joined by famed session musician/Pro-skateboarder Chuck Treece on drums and the Queen of Shoegaze Carolyn “Honeychild” Coleman (Apollo Heights, Badawi) on lead vocals/baritone guitar duties. The band later added Afro-Brazilian bassist Flora Lucini (Maafa), and drummer Jason “Biz” Lucas (Dragonz of Zynth) to the mix. The result is The 1865, a band whose lyrics are just as impactful as their undeniable sound and what Jenkins says “was a great way to create contemporary music that spoke to the past, but also spoke to the same things that continue to happen over and over again in our country.”
