Californian gothic rockers New Years Day have opted to show off some Quentin Tarantino inspiration in the new cinematic video for their track, ‘Come For Me’.
Held in what appears to be a creepy strip club a la From Dusk Till Dawn, the band have also roped in a few of their friends for some cameo appearances, including Spencer Charnas (Ice Nine Kills), Trey Xavier (Gear Gods/In Virtue), and Alexis Mincolla (3TEETH).
This is what vocalist Ash Costello had to say about the video.
“Music videos are a very big part of what New Years Day stands for. We really put who we are as people and artists into every single detail and I think the video for COME FOR ME is New Years Day truly becoming something above and beyond visually than we ever have before. It’s no secret that I am highly driven by movies, specifically horror and cult movies, one of my favorite directors is Quentin Tarantino, and COME FOR ME is my nod to some of my favorite Quentin Tarantino movies. Including, “Kill Bill”, “Planet Terror”, “Pulp Fiction” and “From Dusk Till Dawn”. Whether he directed, produced or acted in the movie, everything he’s been involved in as highly shaped who I am as a visual artist. COME FOR ME needed something fun and in your face to match the vibe of the song. My entire goal with the storyline of this video is to make you think of 3 words… bad mother fucker.”

The band’s fourth album, ‘Unbreakable’, is out now via RED Music.
