The pride and joy of Carbondale, Illinois, the Copyrights are one of traditional pop-punk’s better-kept secrets—the band have put out six albums since forming in 2002, the most recent of which is last year’s totally killer Report. Now, we’re super-stoked to present the music video for that album’s leadoff track, “Slider.” It’s a brief look into a low-ceilinged, graffiti-covered basement where the pop-punk foursome have set up for the night–and it’s over before you even know it.

Report is available now on Red Scare Industries.
