New Video: ACTORS Release Eerie and Murky Visuals for “Slaves”

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada-based post punk act ACTORS, comprised of Jason Corbett (vocals, guitar), Shannon Hemmett (synth, vocals), Jahmell Russell (bass, vocals) and Adam Fink (drums) have developed a reputation fora  modern take on post-punk that some critics have compared favorably to the likes of The Soft Moon, Cold Cave and others.

Building upon the growing buzz surrounding the Canadian post punk act, they released their full-length debut It Will Come To You earlier this year through Arttoffact Records, and the album’s second single  “Slaves,” may arguably be the most direct and anthemic tracks  on the album as its centered around a propulsive bass line, slashing guitar lines, shimmering synths and an infectious hook — and much like its predecessor, it’s an urgent and forceful track.

Directed by Shannon Hemmett, the recently released video for “Slaves” is incredibly stylistic as it features grainy VHS-like footage, edited stock footage, and high definition footage of masked character in a seedy, late night parking lot, further emphasizing the murky vibes of the song.

The Canadian post-punk act will be touring with Bootblacks across the US during September, and it includes a September 16, 2018 stop at Brooklyn Bazaar. Check out the rest of the tour dates below.
