WATCH: Suspects – ‘Anaphylactic Shock’

Southend punk duo Suspects have shared a video to accompany their second single ‘Anaphylactic Shock’; and it’s a thrashing, manic, visceral assault on the eyes and ears. Shot and directed by Kana Waiwaiku, the video shows Thomas Prescott (vocals & guitar) and James May (drums) doing what they do best: playing like their lives depend on it as fans writhe around before them in the mosh.

Released via Cool Thing Records, ‘Anaphylactic Shock’ is the follow up to Suspects’ debut single ‘Innocence’ and it’s as extreme as the allergic reaction it’s named after. The track has received  support from the likes of John Kennedy (Radio X), BBC introducing and Louder Than War, and at 1 minute 18 seconds, there’s genuinely no excuse not to listen to this belting new tune.

Speaking about the track, front man Thomas Prescott says: “Modern life is riddled with so many small but frequent triggers, we all have the ability to lose our cool. And it can be quite an experience when doing so” – and we’re more than willing to lose our cool to the sound of Suspects. Check out the video for ‘Anaphylactic Shock’ below and follow Suspects on Facebook for future updates.
