As UNCLE ACID & THE DEADBEATS gear up to release their new single via Rise Above Records, the band have now unveiled a new video for the lead track Runaway Girls, complete with spliced footage of murder news reports, cult leaders, excess living from a by-gone era and the obligatory biker, booze and pills clips, Runaway Girls is quite possibly the catchiest tune UNCLE ACID & THE DEADBEATS have written to date. And this is no ordinary tale of girls on the run, here is a tale of fatherless girls disillusioned in a loveless world…their intentions are fatal and their desires deadly!
Now stream this hark back to the sleaze of 60’s and 70’s below:
Runaway Girls is backed with an acoustic version (YES, you read that right, ACOUSTIC) Devil’s Work (the full electric version of which featured on last year’s Mind Control album. Both tracks are exclusive to this 7″ and will be available on Monday, 25th August, via Rise Above Records.
