Hunting Lions – “You and Me” – New Digital Single, Music Video, Picture Flexi Out Now

Bay Area punkers Hunting Lions have just dropped their new single “You And Me” ahead of their upcoming European tour. The song is out now on all streaming platforms, along with a killer music video! It is also available on a Picture Flexi, which you can currently get your hands on for FREE with any purchase from the PPR webstore!

“The song is about a fight that I got into back in 1985 when a couple buddies and I ran into a group of Nazi ‘skins’ on our way to a show. This was the first of many fights, beatdowns and altercations we’d have with the different righty groups back then,” singer Ben Coleman explains. “The song tells a story of a short moment in time, but it represents a formative, coming of age period in my life. The friendships I made back then have lasted. The ideologies of anti-racism and punk/skinhead/outsider unity have lasted. My love for subculture and subculture music has lasted.”

Videographer Paul Stevens brought to life Coleman’s vision of incorporating actual photos of the band members and their friends as youngsters – and actual flyers of shows they went to – into the video footage.

The video features also features animation of the tale of the neo-Nazi encounter as it unfolds, with artwork by renowned tattoo artist Dannyboy Smith. Utilizing the unique transparent format of the Picture Flexi, a multilayered version of Smith’s sketches for the animation rendered in white, red, and black take on an appearance similar to an old school animation cel!
