Louisville’s Belushi Speed Ball have released a video for the track We’re Not Thrashers, We’re Hipster Posers. The song is taken from the Stella 1 & Stella 2 double EP that was released back in January.

Gatekeeping invariably exists within every music scene, and the less a band fits the scene’s unspoken criteria, the more closed doors it encounters. The music video then pokes fun at what it often takes to open a door – at a choice that many bands make to achieve some perceived level of success. Specifically, Belushi Speed Ball endures a pact that sacrifices their identity in exchange for an ambiguous promise of popularity, a deal that is not made with the Devil, but rather with a collective of homogenized copycats.”

Stella 1 & Stella 2 is available on CD, vinyl and digital formats via Bandcamp.
