Published Jul 25, 2012Following this spring's release of Floridian punks Hot Water Music's latest LP, Exister, their first since 2004, the veteran outfit have now issued a politically minded video clip for album track "State of Grace."
While showcasing the outfit's sweaty live show, the video is intercut with an artsy take on modified foods and the U.S. health system. Shots include a woman taste-testing a chemical-filled apple replacement, a girl tucking a worm-filled egg into her Easter basket, and a punky teen fighting off some dudes in hazmat suits.
"'State of Grace' was simply inspired by an infectious epidemic of health problems caused from the constant consumption of genetically modified food and non-organic farming continued to run on chemicals or additives," singer-guitarist Chuck Ragan told Rolling Stone. "The fact of the matter is that our society as a whole has veered away from the simplicity of growing food and is now suffering and will continue to suffer the consequences until a greater population decides to make a change for the better."
