MassMatiks share video for new single ‘4AM’, announce support slots for Allusondrugs

MassMatiks promo 2016

UK four piece MassMatiks have released a video for their second single, “4AM.”

With frontman George Peploe’s fierce vocal performance front and centre, the track soon puts its gentle opening lament to rest, evolving into a driving, riff-led melodic chorus.

Inspired by a past breakup, Peploe comments on the video for “4AM” saying: “We wanted to connect the story of the song with the video, so we came up with the idea of setting up TVs and playing what was going through my head at the time.

“As the song goes on, so does the narrative in the video. Trashing the TVs felt like the natural thing to do to reflect the emotions I felt during the breakup – not gonna lie, it was fun too…”

You can check out the clip below.

Following their headline show at London’s Old Blue Last on the 13th July, MassMatiks will make their next live appearance at this year’s Y Not Festival in Matlock on the 21st of July.

They will then head out on the road in August, supporting UK psych-pop-grunge outfit Allusondrugs.

Aug 05th: Cantebury, Lady Luck

MassMatiks drop bruising video clip for new single ‘Gunning For You’

MassMatiks promo 2016

Fast-rising UK rock band MassMatiks have unveiled a bruising, in-your-face video for their new single, “Gunning For You.”

The video gives the perfect taster of the band’s explosive live show, performing in a low-key warehouse, cut with striking imagery of frontman George Peploe’s everyman vocal delivery to camera, spitting his provocative lyrics.

Peploe, a British kickboxing champion, delivers biting social commentary, often spoken word, leaping into soaring, hook-laden melodies and taking in subjects from the naked greed of rampant capitalism to spurned ex-lovers.

Says Peploe of the single: “’Gunning For You’ was written about a guy I knew who is all bark and no bite. He thinks he’s a hard gangster, telling everyone he wants to beat me up, but when he saw me in person he couldn’t even look me in the eye.”

Check out the video for “Gunning For You” below.

With a raft of new music and a string of shows to come this year, MassMatiks have embarked on their first headline tour which sees the band criss-cross the country, playing 12 intimate dates including a London show at the Black Heart, Camden.

Tour dates are as follows:

16th Mar: Brighton, The Hope
17th Mar: Bournemouth, 60 Million Postcards
