Riotous Indignation Premieres "The End" Video

Everybody remember Riotous Indignation? A few months back we had the pleasure of bringing you some thrashing hardcore from the Chicago outfit with the "This World" single, and today we've got a killer new video as well.

Check out our exclusive premiere of "The End" below, taken off the band's latest EP release "Violentus Musicae."

Considering current events, the clip couldn't arrive at a more topical moment as it tackles the endless cycle of gun violence in the band's home town. The video was directed by vocalist/guitarist Mike Repel, who had this to say:

"This song and video were inspired by the ongoing and pervasive gun violence that has been a growing problem for decades in Chicago. This song is actually written from the victims perspective in a drive-by shooting. As he faces his demise, he reflects on the misdeeds he has done, and contemplates the disposition of his eternal soul."

This Chicago-based crossover institution was formed in 2015 by Repel (author of The Music Industry Self Help Guide) and Bob Clayton, who were previous band mates in a metal project called Instant Decay circa 2006-2008.

Riotous Indignation spent a majority of its first year writing and refining several songs, four of which have been made available on the "Violentus Musicae" EP, which was mixed by Nick Bellmore and Mastered by Zeuss.
