When it comes to House of Weirdos, you never really know what to expect. A band who stand firmly behind their name and seem to have a limitless supply of surprises, the four-piece of Tom Pressano, Apollo, Dan Gamma, and Bobby Fonti spent a fair part of 2020 fighting big fat spider ladies and championing a Superman museum, but now, as we boldly step into a new year, the band are back and they’re climbing up the walls.
A bold new single and music video that hits all too close to home, ‘Climbing Up the Walls’ captures the sentiment of 2020 in a nutshell, delivering another sharp wave of relatable lunacy straight from the heart of the Bronx. Armed with their classic hard rock sound, House of Weirdos tackle the issues of isolation and chronic anxiety with their typically straightforward and unflinching sense of style, lashing out with sharp instrumentals and some truly fierce lyrics.
As guitars howls and drums strike hard, frontman Tom Pressano sings about nothing making sense and nothing being aligned, conjuring up a brash, but all too effective sound. Studded with punk energy and a true DIY aesthetic, the single boasts a dark vintage sound and one of the most engaging and acrobatic guitar solos that we’ve heard in quite some time.
Backed by another engaging video from the band, one that follows a moustachioed building supervisor as he suffers from a series of torments, including a torturous session of guitar-amp fuelled shock therapy, ‘Climbing Up the Walls’ is a true work of twisted art. Check it out below.
Infused with their brilliant tongue-in-cheek style, House of Weirdos’ new single is a quickfire reminder that there is still fun to be had, even in the hardest of times. Tune in to the new single above, and be sure to check out House of Weirdos on YouTube so you can dive into their expansive and engaging back-catalogue.
