Retox's New Video Is a Good Old Fashioned Beatdown

Retox, your favorite/least favorite loudness-based weirdo punk/hardcore outfit featuring Justin Pearson of The Locust, is back. In their last video, the So Cal band explored the fine art of smoking meth with tarantulas and what not. Their new one for “Let’s Not Keep in Touch” from Beneath California, is a beatdown, very literally. The just-over-three-minute video features a man getting chased and beaten with a baseball bat by—is that the dude from the Dillinger Escape Plan? Yeah you can tell it’s him by his clavicle tattoo and by the fact that he is a walking vascular mini-Hulk.

So sit back and enjoy this slow mo chase/stomping scene complete with a bloody molar, courtesy of your friends/enemies Retox, above. Beneath California is out from Epitaph Records on February 10.

Also, we followed the band around their digs last year on an episode of Sound Off!:
