Teen Suicide – “Alex” Video

Teen Suicide have long been the affected anti-heroes of the underground. Originally started as a solo project of Sam Ray (Ricky Eat Acid, Julia Brown) in 2010, the band grew bigger than anticipated within the online community that sprung up around artists in the Orchid Tapes orbit in the early-’10s (is it still too early to say that now?), and then eventually burned out. They left behind a full-length, I Will Be My Own Hell Because There Is A Devil Inside My Body, and a few other releases — most notably two EPs, DC Snuff Film and Waste Yrself — that continued to grow in popularity even as all of the band’s respective members moved on to other things. (Or didn’t.)

Last year, Teen Suicide reactivated: Run For Cover reissued I Will Be My Own Hell… and the two EPs, and the band made it known that they would be coming back. Over the past few weeks, they’ve been uploading demos of new songs to their Twitter and Tumblr, teasing an inevitable return. Now the big day is finally here: Teen Suicide will release a new double album — It’s The Big Joyous Celebration, Let’s Stir The Honeypot — centered around a solidified lineup. “Alex” is the album’s first single, and comes attached to a video featuring the band rocking out and smashing guitars.
