Columbus, Ohio, Alt Rock band, Aeir, have signed on to Stephen Perkins’ (Janes Addiction) label Perkins Palace Records. The band released their official lyric video for single “Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em” today.
“I spent 18 months looking for the right band. The first time I heard the band I wanted to know their story and let the world hear their story and their music. I am excited to tell the world about the band” says Stephen Perkins.
“We wrote ‘Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em’ during the midst of the pandemic. The song is a take on the smoking guns of American politics; big pharma, the oil industries and big corporations, as well as the collective feeling of defeat experienced by a majority of Americans at the time. We shot the video with Paul Cunningham at the Ohio HD location, tracked it with Jacob Mooney and had it mastered with Mazen Murrat. All with the intent of capturing the angst of the climate at the time and also the raw energy of our live set. We are all super happy with its outcome,” says the band.
