REVENGE OF THE PSYCHOTRONIC MAN go extra-planetary in "I Wanna Be A Spaceman" video

If you like your punk thrashly fast and energic that's a band for you...

Manchester thrash-punks Revenge of the Psychotronic Man (RPM) have just revealed the video for ‘I Wanna Be A Spaceman’, the latest track to be taken from their critically acclaimed third full-length album, the Alan Partridge homaging Colossal Velocity, out now on TNSrecords.

Watch and share the ‘I Wanna Be A Spaceman’ video here:

Forever true to their staunch, politically-motivated roots, the band quote NASA astronaut and Apollo 14 crew member Edgar Dean "Ed" Mitchell in the track’s liner notes for the new album: “[From space] you develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.’”

The live footage from the video was shot by Mark Richards and Julian Wallinger at Manchester Punk Festival 2016, with bassist Andy Davies being part of the collective that organises the annual event.

RPM have been winning more and more fans right across the underground UK punk scene with their latest album, a 17 track monster crammed full of the kind of socially aware, witty and intelligent punk rock that they’ve been peddling since their inception, but now more finely honed and crafted into a biting, full-throttle assault that’s been rightly showered with critical praise.

The band appear at the UK punk rock Mecca of Rebellion Festival this August as part of a huge string of 2016 UK headline dates.

More about RPM and the new album:

RPM describe the new record as “having all the speed and energy people expect, but with some new twists and turns, with lyrical content that ranges from changing the world through one minute songs with indecipherable lyrics, to dismantling a Corby trouser press, space travel and former footballer Niall Quinn.”

Originally formed in 2004, this hard-living, hard-playing trio have since drunk their way through countless gigs and tours all over the UK and mainland Europe with over 500 live shows under their belt. Their 2009 album, 'Make Pigs Smoke', received rave reviews from Big Cheese Magazine, Razorcake and many more with 2012’s follow up album 'Shattered Dreams Parkway' leading to a future BBC Radio 1 Session at Maida Vale for the Radio 1 Punk Show with Mike Davies. A slew of EP’s and splits was capped off most recently by 2014’s 10 year anniversary 7”, which included two new recordings of old tracks and two dance remixes.

Sharing the stage with the likes of Bad Religion, NoMeansNo, Discharge, Subhumans and many, many more over the course of their career, the band are no stranger to tearing up a room of rowdy punk rock fans. In fact, bass player and vocalist Andy Davies is one half of the team behind TNSrecords and is also part of the collective responsible for the mighty Manchester Punk Festival, which just celebrated its biggest and most successful year to date.
