Sofy Major releasing ‘Total Dump’ (watch the “Shiny Happy Asshole” video)
French post-hardcore/noise rock band Sofy Major are releasing their fourth album, Total Dump, on January 25 via Deadlight Entertainment (FR), Corpse Flower Records (US) and Antena Krzyku (EU), and they once again worked with Dave Curran of Unsane (who are a clear influence on Sofy Major) for this one. We’re premiering “Shiny Happy Asshole” along with its video, which plays on the song title fairly literally (it’s probably safe for work, your co-workers might just think you’re a little weird). And in case you were wondering, the band clarifies: “Title has absolutely nothing to do with REM, no reference of any kind. This is simply a tribute to all of those Shiba Inu dogs out there, all over the world. Shouts out to them for being so proud of their chocolate buttons. So inspiring.”
