Defiant released their re-imagined version of The Adict’s song “Viva La Revolution” to all major platforms via Curtain Call Records. The song was recorded at Full Tilt Studios, mixed and mastered by Patrick James Music Productions. The song was originally written by The Adicts.
“We went all out for this single. We wanted to take a classic punk song and give it a Defiant twist to make an angsty anthem for the post-lockdown era. We enlisted Ace Von Johnson from L A Guns to handle lead guitar duties and Richard Reilly from legendary NYC punk band The Victims to add vocals. For the music video we wanted to pay homage to a classic cult movie and give the audience something they might not expect from us. The result is something we are truly proud to release to the world,” says the band.
The music video was produced by Kayla Casey and directed by Dan Silver with Kevin Johnson as Director of Photography.
