VIDEO: Death On Two Wheels – “Look at the Sound”

Death On Two Wheels - Look at the SoundI didn’t think I’d ever need a lesson in Atlanta’s prodigious musical output, but after returning home from a nearly three-week vacation—holy shit!—the reality was hammered into me anyway. I came home to an inbox overstuffed with fresh press releases, and I’ve been wading through the flood of singles, videos, new releases, tour dates, band news, etc. ever since.

So where shall I begin? Well, how about this bit of hell-raising, death-defying awesomeness from local rockers Death On Two Wheels? Produced and directed by Bobby McCullough for Dynes Media, the video for the gritty, grungy blues stomper “Look at the Sound” was shot live at Daytona Bike Week with the group performing inside the ominously-named Wall of Death. It’s a hyper-charged affair with lots of jump cuts, quick transitions and footage of the band rocking out. And, oh yeah, there’s also a pair of California Hell Riders circling the band on their motorcycles, performing tricks and stunts in what seems to be perilously close proximity to the group. Some viewers might find it a little unnerving, but as frontman Trae Vedder told, the video was the realization of a longtime dream:

I came up with the idea a couple years back. To see it actually come into fruition is really beyond words. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a music video for us. Motorcycles. Rock and roll. Red, white and blue. This is our namesake as a band in video form, truly a dream come true.

Death On Two Wheels’s latest LP is available now on digital, CD and 125-gram vinyl via their Bandcamp page.
