There aren't many better things than bands that get in vans, and while Tampa hip hop and punk outfit Samurai Shotgun took it a little too far by moving to Atlanta, we're glad to be sharing a new video from the boys.
Shot by Anthony Martino during the band's recent trip to Los Angeles for an AfroPunk showcase, the video for "Sabretooth" compiles footage of the band — along with shots of Trash Talk, Letlive, BJ the Chicago Kid, producer James Fauntleroy, and LeiKeli47 — playing live and also being tourists in the City of Angels.
The clip, which is part of their new album Riptide, also comes as Samurai Shotgun launched a new website complete with an online storefront and presence on streaming services. It also finds them sounding like a mix of Taylor Swift and Coldplay according to one guy.
"As we settle ourselves in the state of Georgia, we always know in the back of our minds where this band first started.," the band wrote in a statement. "Our vision, creative unity, and love for this art will continue to grow, all thanks to your support."
