Watch Arty Hardcore Criminals Coliseum Get Arrested in Their ‘Bad Will’ Video

Hardcore bulldozers Coliseum are but weeks away from releasing their fourth full-length album Sister Faith. In anticipation of the April 30th drop date, they’ve already let loose the first taste, “Black Magic Punks,” a Prong-inflected alterna-metal stormer, among others; and now they bring us the mercilessly chugging “Bad Will” with an criminal music video to boot. The “Bad Will” clip works in the long traditon of clips like the Beatles’ “Let it Be” or U2’s “Where the Streets Have No Name,” a guerilla show performed and documented in the middle of a busy neighborhood. Coliseum didn’t climb up on any rooftops, but set up shop for a concert next to Louisville art gallery Ultra Pop.

“It was Ultra Pop’s 5th anniversary and they asked us to set up illegally next door and play a set,” says vocalist/guiarist Ryan Patterson. “It was an oppressive 98 degrees outside, and the music apparently was rattling windows many blocks away… Soon enough the police rushed in and the rest is on film.”

Luckily the band wasn’t thrown in the pokey, and you can catch ’em on tour.
