Backwordz Posts "Statism" Video

Texas-based hip hop / metal band Backwordz just released the "Statism" music video, which features a guest perfomance from Craig Mabbitt of Escape The Fate. The video was directed by Albert Gonzalez and shot in Houston, TX.

"Statism" is the second single off of the band's debut album, "Veracity," due out later this summer. Eric July of Backwordz comments:

"We spent the first year getting a name for ourselves and doing a ton of background work for this band. Now that all of that is out the way, we aren't playing around. We gave our audience a jab with 'Utopias Don't Exist' and now we are throwing straight haymakers. As far as lyrical content, 'Statism' IS BackWordz and it sets the tone for what exactly this band stands for. Alex and I are hardcore libertarians and we want to spread the message of liberty within our music, as well as speak on the dangers of The State.

"It seems that so many people our age have been brainwashed into supporting government expansion; today's music artists in general tend advocate for big government. We are that dissenting voice and we wanted to make it known with 'Statism.' The music video consists of us wearing the colors that represent different types of anarchy. The black and yellow being the most prominent, because we are for the most part anarcho-capitalists.

"We want the state to be abolished, and we want you to know why. I think the coolest thing about us, is that Alex and I actually know what we're are talking when it comes to economics and politics. This makes our lyrics far more in depth and thought provoking. We don't just talk about it during election time, or highside on the internet to sound as if we are a lot smarter than what we are.. We actually live this." More...
