IWRESTLEDABEARONCE Shoots Video For "You Aint No Family"
New York, NY – (May 5, 2009) – IWrestledABearOnce (IWABO), in preparation for the release of their upcoming opus IT’S ALL HAPPENING, is putting the finishing touches on their new music video for “You Aint No Family” with director David Anthony of Ocular Intrusions, who’s also credited for the bands breakthrough video for "Tastes Like Kevin Bacon”.

“This video is going to destroy the last one for ‘Tastes Like Kevin Bacon’," says guitarist Steven Bradley. “This time around we invited our friends and fans to come hang out at a bar in Atlanta with us for a drunken dance-off! It has a she-male, a dance contest, a fog machine, and a bartender who spits in my face... All the key ingredients for an award-winning masterpiece! Steven adds, “David is just as insane as us, we can't wait to get this thing finished for all to see!”

Upon speaking about IWABO’s current tour with THE HUMAN ABSTRACT, OH SLEEPER and VANNA, Steven had this to say, “This tour has been awesome! The crowds have been great! We are stoked to be playing a lot of places for the first time and letting people hear new songs before the album drops! All of the other bands on the bill have their own strong followings for sure, so it's great to play for people who have never heard of us.”

Another masterpiece of chaos and mayhem, IT’S ALL HAPPENING, hits stores on 6/2/09!

The crew from Metal Injection recently caught up with the band while at this years New England Metal and Hardcore Festival. Watch the interview here:
