An Australian metalcore band plays their riffs and breakdowns on a wide open beach, with plenty of footage spliced in of them goofing around – both in the water and out of it.
But this ain’t Parkway Drive’s ‘Karma‘, people. No, this is ‘Never Change‘, the slick new single/film clip from Port Pirie metalcore outfit, The Daily Chase, which Killyourstereo.com has the premiere of for you all today.
‘Never Change‘ is the first new release from the South Australian quintet since their 2015 debut EP, ‘Foundations’.
This new track also features guest vocals from Jarrod Schilling, the vocalist of fellow South Australian outfit, Days of Deceit, with this new video also being produced by The Daily Chase’s drummer, Ben Heidrich. Now, whether it was Heidrich’s or someone else from the band’s idea to get the members to ride those giant fucking inflatable toys down the beach’s sand dunes is kinda irrelevant…as it’s the best damn part of the whole video!
Of course, bands “playing” on beaches isn’t a new thing by any means (see: Parkway Drive, The Brave, and many more) and if anything, it’s become quite a cliché for this particular genre. But ‘Never Change‘ is, while showcasing certain clichés and generic elements in parts, indeed a piss-take and it’s easy to see these five guys had an absolute blast filming this well-shot clip.
In terms of their style, the Parkway Drive influences will always come up with this band’s approach to metal and hardcore, namely the vocals and riffs. But I think it’s also fitting that The Daily Chase vocalist, Rory Cuthell, is wearing a Feed Her To The Sharks top in this new clip, as FHTTS also has some big influence on their sound as well.
So if you dig those two aforementioned bands, or you just enjoy your metalcore in general, or if you have a weird fetish for pristine beaches and inflatable objects, check out ‘Never Change‘ below!
