Maryland based Louder Than Quiet released a new video for their single “Gypsies R Us." Check it out here!
The African-American five-piece group was inspired by the many issues they have dealt with due to their skin color. The single examines racial injustice, an extremely prevalent topic in the United States today. Vocalist, Ali Rezghi, found lyrical inspiration from the trauma her mother faced after losing their family house, causing them to be referred to as gypsies.
This powerful music video examines both the troubles minorities experience day after day through lyricism and picture. The instrumentals give a heavy soundtrack to this sad story and serve as a refreshing reminder that genre and race do not go hand in hand. Heavy music doesn't examine this subject often.
Since 2010 these guys have been tearing it up in their local scene opening up for acts such as Thy Art Is Murder, iwrestledabearonce, and Dance Gavin Dance. With this great video, directed by Scott Hansen, these guys hope for more exposure into a bigger scene. They hope to branch out of their Washington D.C area punk and move onto a more metal direction.
Their first EP, with help from Chelsea Grin and Wretched, is expected to earn them a larger fanbase, showing off a heavier sound. The band looked to Jamie King, recording engineer, to make that possible. The EP is set to debut on the anniversary of the Michael Brown shooting.
