The visual arrives ahead of the band’s sold out tour with Lingua Ignota.
Among the strongest releases to surface in 2022, Oklahoma standouts Chat Pile delivered a universally praised effort with God’s Country. Hailed across the board by music press including lofty reviews from the likes of Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, SPIN, Revolver, Paste, BrooklynVegan, Loudwire and Consequence just to name a few, the album’s reach has resonated with a passionate fan base all eager to experience the band live.
That is especially evident given anticipation of the band’s upcoming Hell is Real tour with Lingua Ignota — with all tour dates having already sold out en route to the band’s highly anticipated appearances at both Roadburn Festival in The Netherlands and Oblivion Access in Austin, TX later this year.
Reiterating the distinction and dynamism of God’s Country, the band has released a new visual from the album for the track “Tropical Beaches, Inc.” that taps into a late night cinema feel in line with the band’s unbound aggression. The band shared how the fun nature of the single loaned itself to crafting an equally fun visual – despite its weighty subtext of greed and consumerism.
“Tropical Beaches, Inc. is a favorite among the band, and probably the song that’s the most fun to play live. It has some of the dumbest riffs on the whole album and we gleefully lose a couple brain cells every time we play it.”
The band gushed about the final product and direction of the visual that brought the substance of the track to light. “The song itself is about the poisonous quest for endless wealth and status in America as seen through the eyes of late MLM pitchman Don Lapre. The Twyford-Rigleys worked out their own incredible interpretation of the song with this labor of love and managed to capture the spirit behind ‘Tropical Beaches, Inc.‘ in their own very cool way. We absolutely love the DIY, midnight-movie vibe of the video, which speaks to our deep-cut VHS loving hearts!”
