WEAK13 release video for Obey The Slave

UNDERGROUND post-punk band WEAK13 have released the video for their song Obey The Slave.

The track is taken from their 2016 album They Live and the video was filmed in a magistrates' court. It revolves around the theme of law and order with the song raising questions about authority and activism.

The band is currently preparing to record their second as yet untitled studio album with producer John Stewart at FrEQ in Coventry, England. 

Frontman and guitarist Nick J Townsend said: "We were so impressed with his engineering on the They Live album; it's important news that we'll be able to work with him again and we know already that he'll do the new material the justice it deserves." 

You can find out more about the band and the album at and watch the video below.
