On June 27th, avant-garde punk band Shithead’s Rainbow (SHRB) released a new music video for their single, "Punk Rock Gatorade," off of their most recent album, Ludlows. Shithead’s Rainbow recently joined the Mint 400 Records family and has shows coming up on July 14th at the Clash Bar in Clifton with Huge Pupils (from Old Tappan, NJ) and CR & The Degenerates (Montclair), and July 28th at FM Restaurant Bar and Lounge in Jersey City. The show on July 28th is presented by (The) Rock-It Docket in conjunction with Mint 400 Records. SHRB will be joined by fellow NJ indie/punk rockers aBIRD (from Bloomfield, NJ), The Components (Jersey City), and Sink Tapes (New Brunswick).
So, who or what is Shithead's Rainbow?
Their Facebook page may describe them the best:
"A musical 5 course:
Bayonne NJ trash
With Jersey City style
And Ridgewood cheese
And Newark bay broth
Served by our toxic sunset"
Band members include the multi-talented Claire Page (who produced and edited the "Punk Rock Gatorade" music video), Nicholas Maratta, Ryan Treppedi, Dan Nagano-Gerace, and Nick Jorgensen.
"Punk Rock Gatorade" is both aurally and visually a force to be reckoned with. Fresh out of the gate with infectious pulsating percussion and guitars layered over thought-provoking experimental tableaus, the energy builds continuously, with the tribe of SHRB beckoning you to come forth and join them in a wild and unearthly party. You'll want to rock, mosh, and scream out the chorus all at once. "Punk Rock Gatorade" is sure to become your fist-raised, calorie-burning "f*ck-it-all" anthem of the year.
