Incite has released a politically charged video for their latest single, “Resistance.” The clip premiered via Revolver Magazine , and with it, the band hopes to open some eyes to the injustices of the world.
Shot on Skid Row in Los Angeles, “Resistance” aims to show the disparity between the rich and poor right in own backyards. The video juxtaposes footage of homeless people in tent cities with images of wealthy people having fun on yachts and sipping wine dressed in elegant attire.
Frontman Richie Cavalera commented about the track:
“’Resistance’ touches upon the huge problem of wealth inequality in America, as well as the rest of the world. When the 1% has more than billions of people, shit has become out of control. We shot this video at Skid Row in Los Angeles, which I think shows first-hand how absolutely fucked up the problem is. This is a heavy song, along with a video that hopefully opens some eyes.”
“Resistance” is the fourth single from Incite’s upcoming fifth studio album, Built to Destroy, out this Friday (25th) via Minus Head Records. The band announced the follow-up to 2016’s Oppression album back in September with the release of its first single“Ruthless Ways.” That was followed by a video for title track “Built to Destroy” and “Poisoned by Power.”
Incite is slated to kick off a North American tour with Soulfly on Friday (25th) in Albuquerque, NM. The tour runs through March 1, winding down with a show in Window Rock, AZ. Kataklysm will be joining the bands for most of the tour with additional support from Chaoseum, Alukah, Skinflint. Unearth will join in for a few West Coast dates towards the end of the trek.
