Frauds are today premiering their grimy new video for ‘Suck Jobs’, a single due to land on 30th October through Till Deaf Do Us Party – check it out below, first on Upset. A bit mad and catchy as fuck, it has all the hallmarks of a cult classic.
“We’re surrounded by people championing equality, but somehow the outdated shitstorm that is Stag and Hen-Do’s has survived unscathed,” say the band. “This song is a reaction to that and all the over-eager, traditional gender conforming nonsense of a disgusting tradition that continues to proliferate as the norm.
“I walked into a bar and saw this drunk mess of a guy dressed as Batman chained to a “stag” who purported to some flimsy approximation of Robin – tossing about lurid comments and some seriously inappropriate nonsense. I was shocked that this is something that a group of grown men, and wider society, found appropriate for the celebration of marriage… what a load of bollocks.
“It’s just an outdated tradition – encouraging debased behaviour, pigeonholing girls as glitter-toting pink ladies and guys as drunk cat-calling Neanderthals obsessed with tits and beer. I was appalled, and such – the lyrics to the song were written the next day, Mike came up with a banging riff and soon after ‘Suck Jobs’ was born.”
Keep an eye out for the band’s debut album ‘With Morning Toast & Jam & Juice’, “out soon.”
