San Francisco punks United Defiance have unveiled a new music video for their latest single “Sing With Me,” off their upcoming album ‘Change The Frequency,’ due out on October 1 (Digi/CD), with a vinyl release to follow in early 2022 via Thousand Islands Records.

The band says, “The concept for the Sing With Me video was to show two rival groups, like the Sharks and the Jets from West Side Story, playing pranks on each other in the tradition of films like Animal House. One of those groups just happens to be sock puppets. Because the song is about unity, the video shows that at the end of the day, you can always make the choice to buy the other guy a drink and have a blast in spite of differences. And sock puppets are funny as hell.”

The new LP features guest vocals from Dave Pederson (Downway), Jason Devore (Authority Zero) and others, and is the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Safe At Home.

The Bay Area 5-piece plays a mix of skatepunk and melodic hardcore inspired by the iconic bands of 90’s-era Fat and Epitaph. Their tight sound and high-energy live shows have seen them sharing the stage with numerous headlining acts over the years including Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Anti-Flag, Good Riddance, Strung Out, and many others.

Appearances at the 2019 Music 4 Cancer and Red Bridge Festivals in Montreal and Quebec, respectively, led to United Defiance signing with Montreal-based label, Thousand Islands Records. Working remotely to stay productive throughout 2020, United Defiance wrote, rehearsed, and recorded Change the Frequency as well as staying engaged with fans via two Live Stream events on Facebook with Takeover Live in Southern California.

United Defiance looks forward to hitting the road again, seeing old friends, and making new ones. They cordially invite you to join them for some tasty, tasty punk rock.
