One of the most awkward parts of the scene is what my friend Johncantslowdown calls GGBB: Good Guys, Bad Band. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve gritted my teeth and forced a smile out when one of my friends played me their horrible band’s horrible music. Which is why DEFILER is so dear to my heart: they are one of those rare examples of a good band who are also the best dudes. They’ve gotten about as much as a band can get (unless the name of the band is ATTACK ATTACK), but their butts are still pain-free.
If you’re wondering what the deal is with thumbnail image for the video, it’s because Jake is hella into Fallout 3 cosplay (srs).
If you ever thought to yourself, “I wish EMINEM stopped rapping about Detroit and started writing songs about deathcore scene politics,” then you will love this song (beat by Chris Pikul). Big, big ups to Jake for taking just as many shots at himself as their many haters– I especially like “I mean, I can’t even write a Cryomancer-topping tune” and “This is not a callout to anyone, this is an invitation to laugh every now and then.”
Oh, and for anyone who happens to be in Russia this summer, check them out on their first international tour– stoked for them!! See below for dates:
