Music Video: The Beatdown – “Wasting Time” featuring Vocalist Hugo Mudie

One of our favorite bands, The Beatdown has posted a new music video. The song “Wasting Time” comes from their brand new record entitled “The Beatdown Meets Hugo Mudie.” Hugo Mudie is the former lead singer of Montreal punk band The Sainte Catherines and founder of the popular punk festival Pouzza Fest. Remember when Tim Armstrong released a record of him fronting The Aggrolites? I think this is something like that. It’s definitely the rocksteady and ska feel of The Beatdown, but with a different vocalist up front. This record brings in more spacey sounds than previous Beatdown efforts. The visuals in the music video are downright trippy to match that sound.

The Beatdown Meets Hugo Mudie is available now on Stomp Records and can be found on Bandcamp and Spotify. Listen below.
