The raucous good time Tacoma punkers of C.F.A. (Cody Foster Army) have announced that the first of four upcoming videos is ready for public consumption, and the heavy rockin' trio is partnering up with The Ripple Effect for the world premiere on July 1st.
The video for "Kick Rocks" was filmed over the course of several live events from the past year and edited by Killiam Lord, and gives the fans who have yet to experience the live shenanigans of C.F.A. a brief glimpse of the raw power these guys bring to the stage. "It's obvious Kill is a fan of CFA's music," bassist/vocalist Cody Foster explains. "The shots and movement of the camera really flows with the rhythm of the music."
The video will also include some extra footage of some typical CFA banter. To those of you who have had a chance to catch their live set, you understand what this entails. If you have not? Think, the Banana Splits. Just less appropriate and more sweaty. The video for "Kick Rocks" is now playing below.
"Kick Rocks" can be found on C.F.A.'s debut Ripple Music release, "Managed By The Devil, Brought To You By The Grace Of God," which can be found through Nail Distribution throughout North America, Code 7 in the UK, and Clearspot International in Europe, as well as the Ripple Music online store.

Until Dawn will unleash latest album "Horizon" on Tuesday, August 6th to follow the band's 2011 self-titled breakthrough. Before the album's release, the band is now offering to fans the first single "This Fallen Fortress" as a free download via PureGrainAudio.com, or you can also stream it in the player below.
Vocalist Adam Macleod comments: "We started working on Horizon two years ago, and the concept came together fast. As a touring band, we are always staring into the horizon geared towards the next show. That’s what we are trying to convey with our next record. We spent an immense amount of time writing and doing pre-production to ensure we lived up to our own expectations and our fans. We believe this is the best representation of what Until Dawn is right now. We are extremely proud and excited to get this record to our fans, to make new ones and hit the road to play the new songs live.
"Our single 'This Fallen Fortress' started as a song about being from Fort McMurray and the struggles we face as a band secluded so far north. But quickly turn into being about gaining strength through out any obstacle you are faced with. We as a band believe you can find strength and perseverance in any situation, and turn it into a positive. Let this dawn awaken."
