ASG PREMIERE “DAY’S WORK” VIDEO VIA VEVO, BAND CURRENTLY ON TOUR WITH WEEDEATER
ASG, who are currently on the road with Weedeater and recently released the brilliant album Blood Drive, have premiered a video for “Day’s Work” via VEVO.
Jason Shi, singer/guitar player for ASG, directed the video for “Day’s Work,” which features performance footage intercut with various psychedelic visuals.
The North Carolina quartet have also contributed a song to Scion’s 10th Anniversary compilation, titled “Mourning of the Earth,” the track is available for free download.
ASG recently celebrated their highest charting and most critically acclaimed album to date, the breakthrough release Blood Drive. The twelve-song collection landed at #15 on Billboard’s Heat Seeker chart and also had impressive debuts on the trade magazine’s Hard Music (#32) and Indie (#67) charts. The album is streaming via Bandcamp.
Stereogum said “Blood Drive is a heavy album, no question, but it’s primarily a catchy album, full of resin-sticky summertime metal.” Revolver called the album “a catchy, melodic triumph of heavy music,” while Alternative Press asserted that “mentioning ASG in the same breath as riff-rockers Torche or Queens of the Stone Age is not only misleading, it might even be an understatement.” Artist Direct went even further saying “every now and again a band puts out a record that changes the tides for them” and continued by describing Blood Drive as a “tipping point moment.”
