Ant (vocals/guitar) tells us about MODERN KICKS‘ new video “Just For Kicks”:
“So I was watching Mr.deeds one day and there’s a line that says”I wonder what the 6th grade versions of ourselves would do, they’d probably kick our ass and put bubble gum in our hair” this sparking the idea to make a video about the younger versions of us having a jail break from detention which all of us were very familiar with at that age. It’s a little rock’nroll high school too, we wanted to get some badass kids and have cause havoc on this school. With the help of some friends and my old high school we made it happen.
The song “Just For Kicks is about being bored with the norm, it’s a teenage anthem about doing what ya want to do, not wasting time or whining about your life but taking control and having a good time because after all is said and done that’s what we’re all about. ”
MODERN KICKS will have a 7″ out on T&A records soon, and are finishing new tracks for a future EP “The Kicks Ain’t Right”‘ that will be released this Summer. The band will also play some shows with The JONESES in L.A. and in the Bay Area in June.
