WEAK13 Frontman Heading To LA To Promote Latest Controversial Video 'Joke'!



WEAK13 frontman Nick J Townsend is heading off to LA in September to promote the bands latest single, 'Joke' in which the video to accompany it sees the three-piece grunge rock outfit create a replica of the White House press room for the video, starring frontman Nick as president of the USA, which was filmed at Wolverhampton's Lighthouse Centre and Stourbridge recording studio Base Studios in Rufford Road by indie production company 57 Studio.

The band are known for their strange thought provoking videos, which in the past have featured frontman Nick Townsend dressed entirely in newspaper in 'Prouder Than U 2' and even a massive budget mini movie style video inspired by World War 1 trench raid with 'Wakedown' which won the award for ‘Best music video’ in the London Limelight Film & Arts awards (2010).

And despite 'Wakedown' being their biggest budget video, their new video, 'Joke' may well be their most impressive and eye catching video to date due to the controversial nature of it ,as well as the low budget, hopefully inspiring and empowering unsigned bands that you don't need major label backing and loads of money to create a powerful attention grabbing video and to be more creative.


Nick, who also directed the piece, said not only has the latest video "warranted us a lot of respect from dedicated supporters in the UK" - it has also attracted interest from music sites and critics across the Pond. So due to the this interest Nick is now planning a promotional trip to Los Angeles, California, in September to showcase the single and video to music contacts and unleash their raw, honest and wonderfully mad creativy further afield!

I myself done a feature/interview with frontman, Nick J Townsend on the video in question, so check it out:
