Thoughtcrimes Debut “Natural Imprudence” Music Video


A music video for the new single “Natural Imprudence” from rising mathcore outfit Thoughtcrimes has newly been released. The group’s lineup is anchored by ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan drummer Billy Rymer, who had the following to say about this track:

“The initial inspiration came about with a conversation Russ and I had about HM-2 distortion. He then brought his Evil Ned pedal to my place and we made a demo. This is probably the fastest we have written and released a track. We are all excited to share something that is still fresh even to us.”

The band once again enlisted Tom Flynn to direct the visual accompaniment for this new song. Vocalist Rick Pepa commented:

“Interestingly, Billy had came up with a visual concept and title that had all these unintended parallels to what I was writing before we showed each other our cards so to speak. It was exciting to have an almost accidental continuity bringing the new material together. Lyrically, it takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to processing the anxieties of an uncertain future and society by calling it out and challenging it.”
