Experimental band American Awesome Alliance (RIYL: Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!, Attack Attack!) are teaming up with AP to bring you their new video for “Magnum Cum Latte,” which features Matt Mehana of I Set My Friends On Fire. (Get the song on iTunes.) Check it out, and let us know your thoughts.
“I wanted to be super original,” says frontman Brannon Centeno. “So, I wrote a song about my ex-girlfriend, haha. The video was months in the making and it took us literally FOREVER to build all of the costumes, buildings, and props; and to work around each member’s hectic schedules.”
Centeno says that during the main filming of the project, the band went three days without sleep. Getting Mehana on board was no easy task, as well. “We hit him up, but he sort of ignored us because he was super busy recording his upcoming album. We’re all huge fans of Matt and ISMFOF, so, when we heard that his pet raccoon had gotten in an accident and needed surgery, we donated to the GoFundMe page he had set up for it. After that, we all started talking on Facebook. Long story short he’s now in our music video. He’s seriously an awesome dude and we all consider him a good friend!”
