An exclusive first-look at the band’s new video ahead of their album’s physical release on Monday - watch below

Leeds-based screamo-noise merchants Blacklisters’ debut album Blklstrs is getting its physical release on Monday via Brew Records, and we’ve got an exclusive look at the video for one of its tracks, ‘Trickfuck’.

Directed by Matt Green, who’s done previous promos for Hawk Eyes, it’s a rather messy affair, and we wouldn’t recommend drinking the band’s homebrew (take a look at the screenshot above) if you don’t fancy spewing up black liquid from your innards. Want more of an explanation? Here’s their synopsis: “Handsome? Stupid? NO? Drink Trick Fuck Lager Booze today to change your life in minutes! want the face? want ripped abs? want to get the girl? Then Trick Fuck Lager Booze is for you. One swig and your dreams will come a reality. force it down your throat and you will be transformed. Power, Strength, Chicks, Handsome, An endless sense of bottomless sadness. With Trick Fuck Lager Booze you will have it all, you will be THE man! Be the Man, Drink Trick Fuck.”
