Emo quartet Darling Waste has released the official music video for “I Am The Villain”, their first new single in over three years. The video follows the tale of four bumbling individuals who happen upon magic keys that transform them into super heroes…kinda. Check it out below!
The band took a very DIY approach to filming the video. Vocalist Lance Waste says “We filmed the entire video on my Samsung Galaxy phone. The phone was actually attached to a selfie stick which was attached to a broken tripod I bought from Goodwill. We shot the whole thing in our hometown over six days with our friends playing the other parts. It cost a total of $8 to make and it’s the happiest we’ve ever been with a music video!“
“I Am The Villain” will appear on Darling Waste’s upcoming full-length (release date and title TBA).
About Darling Waste
Darling Waste began in Cleveland, Ohio. Chasing the dream to New York City, Darling Waste evolved into a 4-piece “mobile rock unit” and hit the road. After seven years, 500 DIY shows in 11 countries, & an incomprehensible number of miles & hours spent wearing out 10 vans, the band has built a fiercely loyal army of devoted fans. After selling close to 11,000 records without a record label or distribution, the industry has also taken note. The band’s music has been featured on MTV, VH1, Showtime and Miramax distributed films, and has been played in rotation on over 100 radio stations internationally. These accomplishments are a direct result of Darling Waste spending years paying their dues: battling the elements, stints of homelessness, instrument thefts and broken hands, feet and jaws while playing self-booked tours of basements, VFW halls, and dimly lit clubs.
