Swedish Duo Total Ape Release Hard-hitting New Track, ‘Young Gods’

Noisey Premeires New Prayers Music Video featuring blink-182’s Travis Barker

NEW YORK, NY (May 26, 2015) – Noisey, VICE’s music and culture channel, is excited to premiere the brand-new music video for “Young Gods,” the new single from the cholo goth pioneers, Prayers.

Directed by Gavin Filipiak, the video vividly documents a street brawl — from its chaotic beginning all the way to the San Diego Central Jail. Famed blink-182 drummer Travis Barker makes a cameo towards the end of the video to help bust Prayers’ vocalist Leafar Seyer out of jail.

Formed in 2013, Prayers have spent the last two years transforming the sound and look of modern goth music with vocalist Leafar Seyer and producer Dave Parley at the helm. Earlier this month, the duo sat down with Noisey for an episode of Noisey Meets to explain how they don’t fit into the cholo or goth scenes, how they ended up joining their San Diego gang, and how their music is about brotherhood.

VICE started Noisey back in 2011, criss-crossing the globe documenting the year in music from heavy-hitters to tiny garage bands who usually play for their girlfriends and moms. Since then, it has grown into one of the most unique and successful video-driven music sites on the planet. In 2012, Noisey teamed with YouTube as a premium content provider, and built out a series of shows that take a completely fresh take on the world of music. As an editorial resource, Noisey.com reaches millions of people a month, and has become a go-to source for weird music news, artist-sourced content, and VICE’s signature offbeat coverage. Noisey throws parties and shows worldwide, hosts innovative online listening parties for new records, and produces videos for the best artists in the world, like MIA, Die Antwoord, A$AP Rocky, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Noisey is more than just a music site—music is the lens with which we explore youth culture all over the world.
