Below you can watch the video for Middle Class Rut's latest single "Busy Bein' Born" from their recent album, No Name No Color that was released last October. I've noticed this duo, made up by Sean Stockham and Zach Lopez, has gained recent popularity. "Busy Bein' Born" was featured in the Transformers 3 soundtrack (although dissappointingly it was not on the iTunes version), and the band has toured with Linkin Park as well as participated in the Vans Warped Tour.
I enjoyed this song. My first listen, I immediately was reminded of bands like Stabbing Westward. The video is quite dark -- a graphic portrayal of a young boy who is kidnapped and forced to fight other boys. The video adds very interesting imagery to the lyrics of the song. I haven't actually listened to the full album, but from what I've heard so far, these guys sound quite good.
Watch the video and let me know what you think!
