NJ punks Crazy & the Brains are releasing a new single called “Brain Freeze” on November 25 and we’ve got the premiere of the intentionally grainy lyric video (dir. Brett Sullivan). The band inject classic punk of the Ramones/New York Dolls variety with a heavy dose of xylophone, and if that sounds weird to you, you just haven’t heard how well it works. Watch the video below.
They’re a super fun live band too, and luckily they have a few shows coming up including two in NYC and two in NJ. The first one here is opening the Nobunny show on Saturday (11/14) at Palisades with David Peel (tickets). And then they play a release party for the new single on November 20 at The Bitter End with The Funk Machine, Della Grove, Ellis Martin, Urban Coyotes, Shark Hat, and Orphan Jane.
As for those Jersey shows, they play the Jersey City stop of the Negative Approach / Child Bite tour happening 11/25 at The Funhouse, and they play the Bouncing Souls holiday show afterparty on 12/27 at the Asbury Yacht Club with The Scandals.
