WATCH & SHARE: Patriarchy – “Grind Your Bones”

“part Bebe Buell, and Nancy Spungen, with a generous portion Bruce Dickinson in aesthetic—altogether a grotesque amalgam of all the sexual energy from punk, goth, and heavy metal.”

“Patriarchy is the Snuff-Metal Band We Deserve, Guided By the Spirit of David Bowie and Dionysus”
– self-titled

“LA-based metal band Patriarchy, featuring multifaceted artists Actually Huizenga and Andrew Means, strikes again subverting our age-old societal boundaries and basking in the dark and weird.” 
– Flaunt

“…a scary fever dream, in the best way possible.”
– V Magazine

“The techno-pop backing track plays against the visuals and lyrics to create, much like all of her art, a wholly disconcerting experience – in the best way possible.”

“…a thunderous, transgressive track that underscores everything to like about this up-and-coming group.”
– The 405

“…it’s a goth project in the best way possible—the band has a death metal logo, blood always seems to be flung around, and the lyrics are not for the faint of heart.”
– L’Officiel

“…more concerned with darkness and raw emotion than catering to the hyper-PC culture that reigns today…and it’s refreshing.”
– Office Magazine

Patriarchy have shared the latest video for “Asking For It.” “Asking For It” is the self-titled track off of their debut LP released last year via DERO Arcade. Featuring vampires, sex and coffins, the video’s darkness is juxtaposed by confetti and their dark sense of humor. With a variety of visual effects, captivating backdrops and an energetic performance the “Asking For It” video displays the bands prowess in art and sound. In addition to the video, Patriarchy has also announced that their debut LP will be available in vinyl. More information and the pre-order is available here.

Patriarchy is a stunning and equally surprising collaboration between the “Predator Romantic” herself Actually (aka Actually Huizenga) – LA-Based multidisciplinary artist – and Andrew Means (3Teeth multi-instrumentalist), revealing a new focus toward the darker, heavier side of synth-punk/new-wave & industrial music.

Their fresh work explores themes of sex, power, subversion & death, with what appears to be an intense interest in Ancient Greek Mythology & 80’s slasher films, a heavy dose of Mulholland Drive, and a sound that is equal parts ABBA and NIN.
