EXCLUSIVE: Choke Up throw the best costume party ever in the raucous “Woke Up Drunk” music video

Boston quartet Choke Up know how to rage musically, as their debut full-length Black Coffee, Bad Habits shows. It’s loaded with slab after slab of slam-bang punk rock that will easily get your blood pumping and make your voice hoarse. But they certainly know how to have a good time, too, as evidenced with their new music video for “Woke Up Drunk.” The Mason Marino-directed video is set at what certainly appears to be the best costume party ever—we spotted Waldo, Jay and Silent Bob, a Benihana chef and tons more mingling in the crowd—with the band providing the soundtrack. Drummer Harley Cox explains:

“We filmed this at my parents’ house, which was essentially our first practice space as well as party spot. Having all relocated out of the area, this was a perfect excuse to round up some old friends and get wild at Mom and Dad’s for old times sake. The song is titled ‘Woke Up Drunk’ and it pretty much speaks for itself.”

Black Coffee, Bad Habits is out now via Black Numbers and can be ordered here.
