Video: Crash Kings / Non Believer (Filmed At The Middle East!)

Check out this new video from Crash Kings for Non Believer, the band’s latest single. Most of the shots in this video are from one of the bands most memorable shows at The Middle East in Boston, a venue that Tony and Mike grew up attending!  (And we frequent pretty often ourselves!)  The video is a very personal look in to Crash Kings, with shots of the house they grew up in, their backyard and even their mother doing what she loves most – cooking!  Good stuff!

Crash Kings

LA-based band Crash Kings (Tony Beliveau on vocals, keys, clavinet, Mike Beliveau on bass and Jason Morris on drums) released their first self-titled album last May, thrilling critics and rock fans alike. Piano-heavy rock often feels flat and like it should be on a “Grey’s Anatomy” episode, but Crash Kings hit hard with heavy bass, drums, piano, and a vintage clavinet to create full, fist-pumping rock with thoughtful lyrics.

The Crash Kings album is rounded out with some sweet, but not syrupy ballads, uplifting piano-heavy bridges, and clavinet-produced guitar solos that make you feel like you’re at an arena show for early Metallica. Tony’s soaring vocals lift the songs to a soul-searing height.

Spending much of the last year on the road in support of their album, the band recently announced that they will be touring with alt-rockers JET.

The band sat down with us to talk about their album, their music video, footie pajamas, and ninjas.
