Toronto’s Brews Willis have shared the video for the title track from their forthcoming second album Party’s Over, out on July 23 on vinyl.
The Plastik Films-produced clip is a satirical look at the shameful moments that follow a night of regrets. The video features cameos from Peter from Teenage Kicks, Nikki Jumper and more.
“One of my favourite videos is the Foo Fighters – ‘Big Me’ video. You know the Footos video? It’s so cheesy and 90’s and immature but super funny.” drummer Pare Bruce explained in a statement. “I really like the mix of band footage plus the mini stories. The concept of ‘Party’s Over’ was inspired from there… we wanted to do a more modern version that still felt similar. So I think the different meme fails are our versions of the Footos commercial spoofs. It was a pretty fun concept to brainstorm out with friends, the band, guys from Plastik Films – I think we came out with like 30 really dumb different ‘Party’s Over’ fail scenarios and ended up with what you see.”
The new album finds the band a little older, a little wiser and a little worse for the wear. They journeyed to LA to record the album to analog tape with Andrew Schubert (Neighbourhood Brats, Pangea) at Cali Mucho studios. It was mixed at Mix LA (Green Day, Rise Against) and in Hamilton, ON by Matt Gauthier at Attic Sound.
The band also announced that they have joined forces with Vans to produce merch. Details TBA.
