In a unique blend of live-action and animation, Progressive Metallers Festacorn released a brand new music video ‘Raspberry Punch’. The single acts as a trailer to the band’s fresh new sound, providing exposition for the upcoming full-length concept album – Slap City Central.
Raspberry Punch is a conversation between the humanized aspect of change and a person afraid of said change. It represents humankind’s inner struggle and fear of change as individuals; as a collective; as a species. The music video serves up the story of individuals and their fears unexpectedly manifesting while they are only looking to have a good time – representing the existential dread that plagues us all.
Slap City Central is the eponymous diner that cultivates, cooks, and plates these fears to the masses. Taking it a step further from their Debut EP ‘It’s Only Natural’, the band has layered nuanced aggression on top of the usual genre-bending approach, garnished with deep introspection. The full-length album Slap City Central is set to release later this year.
