Frontier Ruckus’ Christmastime Video Released Today

Frontier Ruckus shares the brand new music video for their new track “Bathroom Stall Hypnosis.” The disturbing Christmastime video features a young girl’s sugar-fueled, hallucinogenic, and trippy Christmas Eve, which ends in horror. The video was directed by Weston Getto Allen and Dorian Electra and recorded to VHS. “We gave them artistic carte blanche and were braced for something horrifying. We loved it. It kind of feels like a holiday mix of The Ring with The Santa Clause, minus Tim Allen,” said frontman Matthew Milia. The video premiered via Flavorwire, who said it’s “easily the weirdest Christmas-themed clip we’ve seen in a while, thanks to one candy obsessed little girl. Flavorwire is proud to premiere the home video sugar coma in all its glory.”


 

Earlier last month on November 11, Frontier Ruckus released their fourth full-length, Sitcom Afterlife, via Quite Scientific Records. Unlike the band’s previous trilogy of records, which served as a tribute of sorts to the nostalgia of a Midwestern suburbia, Sitcom Afterlife speaks with a more compact and frontal approach. There’s a structured forward motion to this collection, a sense of urgency toward the present, and brevity that speaks of immediate passion – not disregarding that lived-in past but also not forlornly dragging it behind.

 

Frontier Ruckus is hitting the road this January and for a slew of U.S dates before heading out to the UK and Europe in February and March.  The band will also make an appearance at this year’s SXSW in Austin.  A full list of tour dates is below.
