3TEETH have covered Foster The People’s Pumped Up Kicks, highlighting the song’s commentary on school shootings in the new video. Watch it via YouTube below.
“Industrial bands have a long history of subverting popular culture songs. From songs like Revolting Cocks’ version Da Ya Think I’m Sexy? or Laibach’s Sympathy for the Devil,” says 3TEETH front man Alexis Mincolla. “We’ve just always been a fan of this sort of thing and felt it would be a good time to take an iconic song of the late 2000’s and give it some unexpected 2019 industrial darkness, which in the end seemed all too fitting considering the song is about a school shooter.”
The video is the fifth clip to be lifted from their new album ‘METAWAR’ due out on July 5. 3TEETH are unapologetically pointed in their critique of modern American life throughout the cannon of videos. PRESIDENT X (https://youtu.be/eRbKg_5UhlA) tackles rampant conspiracy theories, AFFLUENZA (https://youtu.be/mOBfdkGSUWg) addresses the impact of pop culture consumerism, AMERICAN LANDFILL (https://youtu.be/EbOKU3j23k0) highlights the police state and the NSFW EXXXIT (https://youtu.be/Eq42sN-IgbQ) explores self-liberation.

3TEETH released their self-titled debut album in 2014, seeing the 14-track collection top the iTunes electronic charts and gaining the outfit widespread attention, both amongst music lovers and musicians, leading to the band’s opening slot on two legs of Tool’s 2016 North American tour. Once off the road, 3TEETH locked themselves in the studio, releasing their sophomore album, ‘<shutdown.exe>,’ in the Spring of 2017. The album debuted at #23 on Billboard, and took the band across North America and Europe — headlining, and supporting acts such as Rammstein and Danzig.
3TEETH is Alexis Mincolla (vocals), Xavier Swafford (keyboards), Andrew Means (modular synth/bass), Chase Brawner (guitar) and Justin Hanson (drums).
