On the southside of Edmonton, in the dead of winter, Cold Lungs set out to gather friends from the local hardcore scene to record their first live . It was shot entirely live off the floor in the practice space for Cold Lungs and a few other local bands. Chad Steeves Photography, Firth Photography, and a couple of GoPros captured the madness that ensued. The entire EP, New Pictures//Old Frames, was played front to back (along with two older songs) by three frenzied young men. This video represents two parts: one dim and the other grim, the black and white filming gives viewers a sense of the atmosphere and the loud abrasive music showcases the aggression of the Edmonton hardcore scene. The video spans just under 24 minutes covering every facet of their passionate performance. Have a watch in the player above!
Bassist/vocalist, Justin comments:
This video couldn’t have happened without the help of these insanely talented people we’re lucky to call our friends. Alley Kat brewery were also kind enough to give us a keg of beer, and a ton of people were kind enough to drink said beer and trash our basement. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out, it has the exact mood and atmosphere we want to create for our music, abrasive and chaotic.
