Rival Schools: Wring It Out (video)


Having posted about a new Rival Schools song in October, I nearly forgot that Pedals, the new 10-years-in-the-making album, was officially released on Tuesday.

I haven’t had a chance to dive in, but the band – fronted by former Gorilla Biscuits/Quicksand frontman Walter Schreifels – put out a video for the song Wring It Out, in which a rock-and-roll exorcism is performed on a sinister-looking gal. It’s totally safe for work, unless you find fake green upchuck potentially offensive.

And speaking of Schreifels and Quicksand, a 7-inch of the band’s debut EP (1990) – which features the amazing Omission – will allegedly be released on Record Store Day, April 16 (obviously, hitting Stinkweeds early that day). But I still dream of the day someone remasters/rereleases Slip, the Quicksand classic from 1993.
