Maintaining the momentum from a breakthrough 2019, red hot UK rock collective COUNTERFEIT. share the music video for their first new song of the new year, “The New Insane,” today.
The visual bottles the frenetic energy of the song. Awash in blood-red hues, the band thrashes about in silhouette as distorted bass echoes amidst thunderous drums and jagged riffing. The video was shot over the course of their UK/European tour earlier last year. As the soundscape tosses and turns, singer Jamie Bowerproclaims, “I’m on ‘The New Insane,’ you’ll never be like me’.”
The song also arrives hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed single “It Gets Better.” The song’s positive message turned heads on both sides of the pond with KERRANG! praising the tune as “incredibly wholesome.”
Adding to their accolades, the band continues on their European tour joining Palaye Royale on tour and will be playing numerous festivals this summer. See full tour dates here: www.therealcounterfeit.com.
On their own terms, COUNTERFEIT. staked out a spot at the forefront of modern music. Igniting a
catchy combo of genre bending melodies the UK outfit turned up with a universally acclaimed full-
length debut in 2017 entitled Together We Are Stronger. Not only did it receive acclaim from Rock
Sound, but KERRANG! proclaimed frontman Jamie Bower among the “50 Greatest Rock Stars.”
Additionally, they won “Best Live Band” at the AIM Awards and received a nod in the category of “Best British Newcomer” at the KERRANG! Awards. They also smashed stages everywhere from
Reading & Leeds to Slam Dunk Festival.
Be on the lookout for the band’s anxiously awaited second album very soon!
