Over the years, you come to terms with the fact that your favorite bands will never love you as much as you love them. However, every once in a while, you find out that they do and it's actually not a sick joke, but a beautiful truth.
So who are we referring to exactly? The English/Thai quintet, The Standards, who performed at this year's Culture Collide back in October and included that footage in their new music video for "Wake Up Dead"; your first taste of their sophomore album due for release in early 2013.
Edited by The Standards' synth/keys wiz, Manasnit Setthawong, this video features live footage of the band's unforgettable sets at TAIX's front lounge, plus low-key moments during their trip to Los Angeles like cruising on the freeway and walking up and down Sunset Blvd.
Based on this track--full of wailing guitar and pounding drums--it's safe to say that this forthcoming record will be just as energetic and killer as The Standards' live performances. Keep tabs on the band via their official website.
