Funk-punk vets !!! (Chk Chk Chk) have shared a couple more songs off their upcoming album, As If. Both "Bam City" and "Ooo" are slinky jams and the laid-back style works well for them. I've liked everything I've heard off As If so far. Stream those below. The band also made a video for "Bam City" and here's what they have to say about it:

We did it the same way as OUR LAST VIDEO, goofed around on the laptop cam for an hour, this time in Gorman's kitchen, and then had our friends at Mad Ruffian and our other friend Luke Crotty trip it out with some animation. We did 3 takes this time and I swear Mr. Meow was more excited about dancing in the earlier takes. And the song, well it's glammy, slammy, and bound to win a Grammy, or 20 (say it with an accent and the rhyme scheme stays intact.... Sammy). Just a taste of the many surprises we have in store for u on 'As If'. Hope u like and if u don't I'll simply just die. Or maybe just keep on like I usually do. K, bye.

Watch the "Bam City" video below.
