Rozwell Kid illustrate a tale of anxiety with “UHF on DVD”

1078

Panic attacks are terrible. If you’ve never had one, count yourself as lucky. For those of you who have, you know how terrifying it can be. Jordan Hudkins of West Virginia band Rozwell Kid knows this pain. In the group’s latest single, “UHF on DVD,” Hudkins has turned the story of one of his attacks into a song.

The song is based on Hudkins having an attack in a restaurant while on tour in Australia. It’s bad enough having an attack in your home, let alone when you’re on the other side of the world. The thing that calms him down? The thought of some delectable tacos and the 1989 “Weird Al” Yankovic film, UHF. Besides being a relatable tale for those with anxiety, the song is also a jam with an especially good guitar solo in the middle. The lyric video animated by Geoff Hoskinson is also great, featuring some funky animations and speech bubbles.

“UHF on DVD” is off of Rozwell Kid’s upcoming album, Precious Art, which arrives on June 23. The band is also going on tour this summer with a full list of dates below. Other acts on the tour include Chris Farren, Great Grandpa, and Vundabar. Tickets for the concert go on sale this Friday at 12pm local times on the band’s website, where pre-orders of the new album can currently be found.
