Sydney-based punk band FANGZ have today revealed a humorous music video for their new single Won’t Be Me – filmed, directed and edited by Rhys Bennett (Polish ClubTotally Unicorn).

Shot predominantly at Snacky Chan’s in Annandale, the clip focuses on a frayed couple, played by Callum Reilly and Sarah Bernardo, going on a deplorable date where the band members of FANGZ wreak havoc as restaurant staff, while also performing the song. Featuring vivid quick-cut editing, eccentric characters and cunning hilarity, the video is a restorative spectacle that attests the group’s light-hearted spirit.

Bassist and songwriter Jameel Majam talks about the story behind the clip: “The clip follows a couple in a less than perfect relationship going out on a date to a restaurant. From the get-go, they’re greeted by a terrible Uber driver who really sets the tone for the rest of the evening. They arrive at the restaurant expecting a nice evening, but unfortunately for them, this subpar establishment is run by the semi-professional punk band FANGZ. The lack of hygiene, etiquette, and basic understanding of running a fine dining eatery seems to further stoke the flames of this relationship. Eventually, the girlfriend of the pair leaves as the young suitor is left with the bill and a lonesome Uber ride home.”

Alongside the video, FANGZ recently announced a 20-date national headline tour, including an appearance at Halloween Hysteria and multiple performances in SydneyMelbourneBrisbane and numerous regional towns. 

Since its release, Won’t Be Me has seen praise from the likes of Apple Music, NME, Hysteria Magazine, HEAVY Magazine, Australian Music SceneAAA Backstage, Backseat Mafia, GC Live, Punktuation, Rawing In The Pit, LA on Lock (USA), Underground N’ Proud (POR), Havoc Underground (USA) and Indie Criollo (ECU). It has also received support from triple jtriple j UnearthedTriple MThe Faction, 4ZZZ, Radio Adelaide, Edge Radio, and Crescendo Radio (NZ).
