The other day I spoke with Gary Cherone about his new project Hurtsmile. I knew I had to write the video premiere for Noisecreep earlier this week and I wanted to post here as well. I really like the song and the video is cool.
Gary told me how the band ended up choosing "Just War Theory" as their first single, saying "Usually there are two or three songs that rise above the other ones, and 'Just War Theory' is one of them. A first video ... you wouldn't pick something slow or mid-tempo so you rule those out. It's as good as two or three other tracks. It represents the band. [It is] pretty aggressive, very rock 'n' roll and has a good lead in it. We just wanna make a splash with this first video."
If you are attending M3 Rock Fest in Maryland this May then you probably know Hurtsmile is on the bill. I asked Gary what time his band would play the side stage and he wasn't sure. He told me they were told they didn't need lights, so they will definitely be during the day. I'm really looking forward to their set.
