Victory music! Video looks great!

It reminds me of the music interludes the play during broadcasts on Democracy Now!

Once again, many many thanks to Jed for workin' with us on this!

Jed also co-directed the video for Pharoahe Monch's cover of P.E.'s "Welcome To The Terrordome:"

Great fucking vid. Great song. 2008 was a perfect time to do that shit as well. Pharoahe's a G. Pharoahe/B.Dolan collabo in 2011?

Jed is a long time SFF member and SFR supporter. His work is all over the internet. Search him out: "Jed I. Rosenberg."

This is a great video of the song. It fits so well. Everyone should check out the PFA ep. So much punk rock sounds the same right now.

Thanks for the great comments/responses! We're glad the video is really resonating with people.

Also, new music is on the way. More on that in due time, though. : )

"Friday, December 10, 2010

Rhode Island based Prayers For Atheists have been getting major props over the last few years for their high-energy, smart, political punk rock. The group started as a collaboration between spoken word poet Jared Paul and musician Alan Hague. Jared's rhythmic poetry caught Alan's attention at a show and the two began to figure out how their styles could work together. The result is Prayers For Atheists, the band, and the EP that is out now on Sage Francis' Strange Famous Records.

Musically the EP is a mix of punk styles that stays hardcore while being extremely danceable and fun. Lyrically Jared explores relevant issues of our day with a critical edge, and a penchant for resistance.

Psalm for St. Paul is a personal account of his true life experience being harassed and arrested by police during a non-violent protest at the 2008 Republican National Convention, and the grassroots campaign to battle the charges in court that followed.

The official video, released today, combines actual footage from that protest with clips of the band's live show and Jared singing his story to the camera. It builds into a dynamic and powerful statement and document of the very real struggle of free people in the police state.

Check out the album at Strange Famous Records."

You got it!

Nothing wrong with throwing a little subliminal B. Dolan at the people.

Whether you know it or not, he's always in your thoughts...

Can't get enough of the B. Dolan actually... We're gonna have to have him being the People's Rep in the Pit in the Bouncers n' Cops video!


*Glad you dug it, Firefly! Countin' on ya to keep nudging this forum a bit more toward the radical, and a bit further away from the liberal. Let those Red n' Black flags fly!!

PROPER.

Absolutely proper.

Such a charged up and raw piece of work, and perfect for the music - really digging this and it's powerfully inspiring to see this kind of thing right now.

Smashed it, fellas.
