Finch try to bury their past in new video

Finch Play Dead video titlecard

The older I get and the more bands who reunite and disappoint me, the more jaded to the whole idea I become. Refused are the main culprits, but I have low expectations for the new Faith No More and The Fall Of Troy output – not from any evidence, but more because I am bitter and surly.

Nevertheless, it’s not all bad news bears. Finch reunited a couple of years ago, and whilst their new record Back To Oblivion released last year, didn’t live up to the dizzying heights of Say Hello To Sunshine for me, it wasn’t half bad.

Seems things are still rolling along for the Californian quintet, as they’ve just released a new video from that album – specifically for the song “Play Dead“; one of the better tracks for sure:

The band are still promoting the album with tours too; they’re currently out with Yellowcard of all people, and will be until mid-May when they head to the UK to play Slam Dunk Festival, and their own headlining run with Fort Hope and Only Rivals.
