D Generation – “Militant” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
For the first time in 17 years, NYC glam punks D Generation are gearing up to release a brand new album. Nothing Is Anywhere comprises mostly first or second takes tracked in basements under Avenue A as well as the recently-shuttered Magic Shop in New York City. It reunites the band’s classic lineup of Jesse Malin, Danny Sage (who also serves as producer), Howie Pyro, Richard Bacchus and Michael Wildwood.
“We’ve finally made a record that represents us,” says Sage. “We make a really good noise on stage, and this album is a little more snotty, nasty. The needles are in the red a bit more.” Having formed as a reaction to the culture of the early-90s, the band decided that now was a better time than ever to bring back D Generation. “We decided to do another record because we still have a fire under us,” says Malin. “The world is even more full of shit than it was when we were in our 20s. One digitally connected highway of invasion and disposableness, burning through the planet and time.”
Today, we’re premiering the video for “Militant,” the second single from Nothing Is Anywhere following “Apocalypse Kids.” The video perfectly depicts the band’s frenetic live rage, which is still running strong nearly 25 years after their formation. Before any lyrics, Jesse Malin’s scream pierces through the track over a screeching guitar and a tom roll on the drums, leading into a trudging rhythm in the verse before Malin screams an extended “No, baby,” for the chorus. Check out the video below.
