COLISEUM "Sharp Fangs, Pale Flesh" official music video directed and edited by Coliseum frontman Ryan Patterson, starring Will Oldham and Katie Peabody. "Sharp Fangs, Pale Flesh" from "Anxiety's Kiss" CD/LP/Digital in stores now from Deathwish Inc.
Founded by Louisville musician Ryan Patterson and including Kayhan Vaziri and Carter Wilson, power trio Coliseum have grown to become one of today's quintessential contemporary punk bands. Successfully melding progressive musicianship, hardcore fervor, and vital social awareness into one constantly evolving artistic vision.
“Anxiety’s Kiss” is the new album from Coliseum, recorded at The Magpie Cage by producer/engineer J. Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines). “Anxiety’s Kiss” is a hook-laden maturation of the Coliseum sound. Nods to their early D-Beat leanings are there, but it is their willingness to embrace Post-Punk melody and explore the space between notes that make “Anxiety’s Kiss” so alluring. Confidently growing within the punk world, without ever leaving it behind.
“Sharp Fangs, Pale Flesh” is a song off of Coliseum’s most recent record, Anxiety’s Kiss, which dropped back in May. It’s a nuanced tale about a haunting, vampiric woman with “sharp fangs and pale skin” who pursues the narrator and eventually consumes him. Coliseum’s frontman Ryan Patterson directed the video for the song, starring Will Oldham as a lonely god-fearing man who finds himself at the mercy of this wraith-like woman, who’s played by Katie Peabody. It’s all very Baudelaire -- Stereogum
