3TEETH offer fans a final preview of the band’s forthcoming album, “METAWAR”(05 July, Century Media), with the release of their ‘PRESIDENT X’ video.
The rousing video parodies the forthcoming 2020 U.S. presidential election as well as the enduring conspiracy theory that humankind is controlled by a cabal of reptilian overlords.
“’President X’ is about an arbitrary figure head that will continue to be replaced, repositioned and repackaged to maintain an illusion of choice and difference in a system that operates on auto-pilot,” explains singer Alexis Mincolla. “As the administration pendulum swings back and forth in our bi-partisan shit show, you basically get a new leader who comes in with the goal of undoing what the last guy did, continuing this cycle of futility. It’s like one of those TV shows that just keeps going on season after season, walking you in circles by throwing in new hackneyed characters and the same trite notions of conflict but in reality the story has no arc and no resolution and by the time the season finale comes, oh and it will come, you’re going to look back on it go holy fuck I want my money back… and no I’m not talking metaphorical money, I’m talking about your actual tax dollars that funded a hot trash show. I believe there was a fine scholar by the name of Frank Zappa who once said ‘Government is the Entertainment division of the military-industrial complex.’”
