The band’s debut album Beautiful Life is out on 2 August 2019.
Welsh rock band Junior have revealed the video for their new single P.Y.D, which features guest vocals from Indy pro wrestler ELIJAH. The track is taken from the trio’s debut full-length, Beautiful Life, which is set for release on 2 August.
Continuing the wrestling theme, the video features cameos from wrestlers Adam Cole (WWE NXT), Ali (WWE), Drake Maverick (WWE), Drake Younger (WWE), Jimmy Havoc (All Elite Wrestling), Kassius Ohno (WWE NXT), Marty Scurll (Ring Of Honour), Rhea Ripley (WWE NXT), Rickey Shane Page (CZW King of the Deathmatch), Ruby Riot (WWE), TJ Perkins (WWE/TNA/ROH) and Will Ospreay (New Japan Pro Wrestling).
“I’ve said for a while that Independent wrestling is the new punk rock,” comments Junior vocalist/bassist and WWE wrestler Mark Andrews. “Our new single P.Y.D is about the punk rock, DIY mentality of people in the independent pro wrestling scene. The song and video is a homage to some of the top wrestlers in the world today who came from a scene that celebrated pro wrestling regardless of the gritty, low budget environments it started in. There’s a lot of love and passion in the community centres and bingo halls across the world that showcase their shows, and it’s moulded all of the stars who cameo in this video. It also features Indy pro wrestler ELIJAH who sings some pretty gnarly vocals in the bridge!”
