Animal "The Downer" video premiere

New York state hardcore ruffians Animal debut a new music video.


Animal is currently writing and recording a new full-length album. We guarantee that the Albany, New York hardcore/metal (for lack of a better description) band is brewing up something extremely heavy.

In the meantime, however, they're not leaving fans empty-handed. Today we're premiering the band's brand new music video for "The Downer." The clip was directed by Taylor Bryant of Outcast Productions and can be viewed below. If you'd like to check out Animal live, they'll be touring in July. Be sure to keep up with all of the dates here.

This band could probably go somewhere if they weren't stupid enough to sign to We Are Triumphant.

anonymous 6/1/2015 11:40:09 AM

100% trash

anonymous 6/1/2015 11:49:08 AM

so good

anonymous 6/1/2015 11:50:44 AM

please keep playing on the whole "i'm a f*ck up i'm suicidal" niche. its definitely not overused and unoriginal as shit.

anonymous 6/1/2015 11:55:35 AM

Ummm. Worst song ever

anonymous 6/1/2015 11:56:15 AM

This is the worst thing I've ever seen. I tried scratching my eyes out while watching. May God have mercy on all of your souls. R.Rorick

anonymous 6/1/2015 11:57:04 AM

these guys are insane

anonymous 6/1/2015 11:57:24 AM

this whole new wave of nu metal / sworn in core shit needs to die. terrible.

anonymous 6/1/2015 12:02:09 PM

I heard locals from New York were good. Guess I heard wrong.

anonymous 6/1/2015 12:07:26 PM

The only animal this band represents is a cat. Why? Because they look like a bunch of pussies playing horrible music.

anonymous 6/1/2015 12:19:33 PM

Yes it makes so much sense to hide your face and keep your back to the camera in a music video.

anonymous 6/1/2015 12:23:12 PM

people like this band?

anonymous 6/1/2015 12:29:55 PM

Music is tight. Lyrics and vocals are terrible and unoriginal. I thought the EP was bad. And this just confirmed that I do not care for this band. Bring back The Less We Know

anonymous 6/1/2015 12:33:15 PM

Let them play there crappy music. I'm sure they do it for attention anyway. This is all shtick. Nothing original here. Sworn in part 2. Sadly kids will eat this bullshit up because 14 year olds hate their parents.

anonymous 6/1/2015 12:33:52 PM

Needs more blegh

anonymous 6/1/2015 12:34:44 PM

This music is making that poor boy vomit.

anonymous 6/1/2015 12:35:49 PM

Cannot get into the vocals

anonymous 6/1/2015 12:37:15 PM

I dug this band till I saw them live. The vocalist is kind of annoying.

anonymous 6/1/2015 12:44:33 PM

Vocalist seems like he's trying to hard to be "artsy" by being controversial and overly negative. I'm not buying it He probably still sucks his mothers tit. f*ck this band, f*ck this generation. Stop supporting shit like this!

anonymous 6/1/2015 1:14:33 PM

This band and every other band on the power kingdom has zero talent and substance.

anonymous 6/1/2015 1:15:09 PM

This isn't hardcore this is shit.

anonymous 6/1/2015 1:18:24 PM

Literally the worst vocalist I have ever heard. You would be better off using the screaming goat, at least then there would be something semi-original about this song. I thought we were over our middle school angst. I guess not.

anonymous 6/1/2015 1:38:28 PM

yikes :( this isn't good music. you guys need to wake up ..this isn't original. this isn't art

anonymous 6/1/2015 1:57:45 PM

This is actually shit.

anonymous 6/1/2015 2:45:38 PM

Sworn in

anonymous 6/1/2015 2:58:30 PM

This shit is awesome. Video is awesome. f*ck negativity. Slay this shit.

anonymous 6/1/2015 3:27:31 PM

^^^^^^band member or shitty friend of said band member^^^^^^^

anonymous 6/1/2015 3:53:16 PM

Yooo this is tight. Give em something to hate

anonymous 6/1/2015 4:16:21 PM

you guys are killing it, show them what "haters make me famous" is all about

anonymous 6/1/2015 6:29:34 PM

^^^^LOL^^^^^ You think there is anything of substance with this shit? They will all get massive egos then start hating on each other. They will get sick of eating pizza and getting blown by ugly girls. They will make no money and there parents will get sick of supporting them. They should just quit now and go to college

anonymous 6/1/2015 6:35:05 PM

I would mirk someone to this

anonymous 6/1/2015 6:36:36 PM

^^^I'm sorry life isn't going to well for you. At least you are giving these dudes attention good or bad

anonymous 6/1/2015 8:01:40 PM

9/10 out of ten dentist agree, this vocalist sucks

anonymous 6/1/2015 8:06:29 PM

awesome. I love the vocals so much like god damn

anonymous 6/1/2015 8:12:41 PM

Dude said f*ck negativity. Did you even listen to the song, kid? Jesus f*ckin Christ. Not original but whatever the music is kinda cool. the vocalist sounds like a crybaby whiner sad bitchboy like the vocalist from villains. Why don't heavy bands write lyrics with actual substance nowadays?!

anonymous 6/1/2015 8:41:32 PM

Song about substance abuse... Lacks any substance

anonymous 6/1/2015 10:01:42 PM

Animal "The Downs" video premiere

anonymous 6/1/2015 10:04:57 PM

No groove. Junk

anonymous 6/2/2015 12:04:51 AM

Been done before, but still goes in. I can dig it

anonymous 6/2/2015 7:09:35 AM

Hey, so I was in a band with a few of these guys before and promoted a ton of shows for each of the bands that Animal's members started in... I love the song, the video, and these dudes. The only downer I see about this, is that it sounds way too similar to Sworn In.

anonymous 6/2/2015 10:44:10 AM

^^^^^WHO CARES f*ckBOY?^^^^^^^

horseheadxbookends 6/2/2015 1:20:56 PM

anonymous 6/2/2015 3:09:26 PM

Loved this video. Love this band.

anonymous 6/2/2015 6:31:17 PM

It'd be cooler to here how you're overcoming problems rather than being subdued by an unfair world. Still diggin the passion though!!

anonymous 6/2/2015 7:42:19 PM

anonymous 6/2/2015 11:23:34 PM

f*ck you for saying people need to go to school to be successful. Ignorant as f*ck.

anonymous 6/3/2015 12:28:41 AM

f*ck you for supporting music like animal

anonymous 6/3/2015 12:43:44 AM

Its the same bitchboy commenting over and over, hes mad his life sucks and he doesnt have a job or hobby so he has to keep comenting and comenting on lambgoat cuz he has no life, so just excuse his ignorance. On another note, sick track and vid!

anonymous 6/3/2015 4:34:54 AM

Whatever, this is nothing special. Like if Sylar and Sworn in had a baby this would be it. If they do well more props to em; just doesn't do anything for me.

anonymous 6/3/2015 6:45:37 AM

I would rather have a wasp fly inside my dckhole than see/hear anything else this shit band has to offer.

anonymous 6/3/2015 7:53:52 AM

Every band that is associated with the animal kingdom or what ever it's called suck dck

anonymous 6/3/2015 9:59:05 AM

Your dckhole couldn't fit a piece of string in it 8->

anonymous 6/3/2015 10:44:12 AM

Your dckhole couldn't fit a piece of string in it 8-> next time you pee look how big that dckhole gets!!

anonymous 6/3/2015 2:03:14 PM

Next time you pee make sure you wipe the piss off your balls

anonymous 6/3/2015 3:58:55 PM

Too bad this band didn't die with bogies!

anonymous 6/3/2015 6:41:18 PM

This is awesome. Repeat

anonymous 6/4/2015 11:37:25 AM

I heard the vocalist actually killed a dude

anonymous 6/4/2015 4:00:53 PM

Absolute worst vocalist ive ever heard shity middle school lyrics cat being strangled vocals it all sounds like dumb noise but the vocals are the absolute worst ive ever heard,such trash

anonymous 6/4/2015 4:13:52 PM

If you hate how he sounds on here you shoukd hear how bad he/they sound live like a bunch of bassy drop dick low fake sounding tuning with a terrible vocalist sounding like a high pitch no key terrible shit screams,the drummer actually sounds good though. But where is there any actual music in this "music video"

anonymous 6/5/2015 7:43:19 AM

This band was sick live. Idk what show you saw but they were crazy

anonymous 6/5/2015 7:51:50 AM

Some of the nicest funniest dudes I've ever met. Keep it up and come back to Rochester

anonymous 6/6/2015 7:12:55 AM

Anon is f*cking tuff.

anonymous 6/6/2015 11:17:03 AM

This shit goes in! f*cking love the vocals and the guitar writing is dope. I've heard these dudes are on point live and the drummer looks solid af. The videos tight too. f*ck negativity

anonymous 7/9/2015 2:32:20 AM

I'm not too big on the vocals. They're a little hard to get into. But the music is tight. And all you who are hating. Just let them play their f*cking music. And stop comparing them to Sworn In. Jesus Chris

anonymous 7/18/2015 9:42:51 AM

ANIMAL = the bomb, son. I love these dudes. Hate all you want bc as you know (or should), it just makes for a bigger drive within the band to work 10x harder. <3
