Highlighting today’s announcement is the release of single “Def Cons” and accompanying music video, the fourth installment of the short film written by Fat Mike and serialized across five music video releases.

“I suggest listening to the song first – then watch the video. The song is better than the video, and the video is pretty fucking good.” – Fat Mike

Commenting on the very real issues addressed in the video for “Def Cons,” Ceschi Ramos says: “As someone who’s been pepper sprayed while arrested, beaten with nightsticks & had more police guns to my head than I’d like to remember, filming this video was an exercise in confronting PTSD. Enjoy.”
