This is our music video for the song "Darnit" from our 2013 LP "Whatevermind". Created, filmed, and edited by yours truly.
Hi! We're Rational Anthem, a punk band that's been putting out records and touring the U.S. for the last seven years and - when we're not doing that - you know, working day jobs and stuff. (Punk rock isn't especially profitable in 2014; who knew?!?) That's kept our band afloat thus far, but this past summer our van died on us out in the desert. We got a temporary loaner (from an outstanding friend), but that one's on the way out too. Problem is we still have two more tours booked for 2014, with a lot more to come in 2015, and making the jump to a reliable van is just a little more than we can afford. Want to help out? Cool! We've got a bunch of great rewards we're offering in exchange for contributions - check 'em out! Then take a look at our Facebook page for the dates of our tour out West later this month - and keep an eye out for our Fall tour dates, which we'll post soon. Come catch a show when we hit your town. When we're not punk rockin' our little hearts out, we enjoy meeting new people, shootin' the shit, and eating burgers with our new friends. See you soon - and thanks a ton!
Risks and challenges
The Fall tour won't be our first rodeo. If we're able to raise the money for our next tour van, nothing's stopping us from following through with our plans to rip rad around our little nation, melting hearts with our bombastic punk rock melodies. On the other hand, if we're unable to get the money together, we might have to QUIT PUNK ROCK FOREVER and use what little money is left in the band coffers to buy suits and ties so we can go work for the man, dude. But, uh, risks: with successful funding, we're gonna find a van, get all the registration/paperwork stuff in order, buy insurance, and do all that other adult stuff. This has all gotta be done in time for the Fall tour when our buddies in The Murderburgers get here (from Scotland!) so time is of the essence! But for reals: if you got us, we got this.
