Witness the D-Beat Raw Synth Punk of SCHKEUDITZER KREUZ “Second Life” Video Premiere

Jeremy Belinfante

I’m Canadian, but I spent six years living in Los Angeles, and in the last year I lived there, there was a mass shooting in my neighborhood. Just a couple blocks from my home, a young man murdered his family, and shot up my surrounding streets, ending up on a college campus where he murdered four people, including a father and daughter. They were the streets we walked with our toddler, where we’d raised our teenage daughter, where we played and shopped and felt safe. Now they were surrounded by sirens, a horde of helicopters overhead, and bullet holes in windshields. Listening to people who didn’t live where I lived and didn’t feel what I felt argue about whether more or less guns would have made a difference was maddening. It felt so disrespectful to the lives lost and the sense of stripped-away safety for people to immediately make it political — but that’s what America does to keep the status quo in place.

So listening to the chaotic sounds of industrial synth crust // d-beat raw synth punk multi-machinist SCHKEUDITZER KREUZ perfectly captures the disgust and fear I felt watching the country descend into yet another Libs vs Cons debate. “Second Life” is his latest single off his upcoming record No Life Left that’s out via Bad Habit Records and Sorry State Records on August 25th, 2023 — pre-order it here. On “Second Life,” he samples soundbites from the dizzying and disorienting media bullshit that follows a mass shooting, chanting “Another one dead / and another one fucking dies”! Today we’re stoked to be sharing this SCHKEUDITZER KREUZ video for “Second Life” below, and check out the European tour dates below that!

I was and am appalled by the repeated school shootings that have become normal and almost unremarkable in the States, and the total lack of real action to tackle the issue.
