Video Premiere: New Stuff from Chicago’s Favorite Celtic Punks, Flatfoot 56
The positive Celtic punks Flatfoot 56 have been making their hometown of Chicago proud since the year 2000. Therefore, Riot Fest is thrilled to premiere the video for “Odd Boat,” the title track from the band’s new album, out now on Sailor’s Grave Records.
Frontman Tobin Bawinkel shared a few words about the video.
This video was shot over a five day period during a six week tour with Agent Orange across the United States and Canada. We wanted to capture the band’s live experience and document some of the personalities in Flatfoot.
The song “Odd Boat” is about unity and highlights what brings us together. In a world that seems fixated on dividing people, we wanted to bring unity to those that choose to listen.
You can purchase the album here, and then go check out the band in Russia to sing along and, if you can find the time, engage in some light collusion.
