New York City’s grimy noise/grunge metal trio, FASHION WEEK, has just issued an ultra gnarly video for “Heroin Chic” — the track culled from their Prêt-à-Porter debut LP and the video seeing its debut through Revolver Magazine — just days before the band begins the eight-city East Coast Strut.
Without blowing the lunatic plot of the video, it’s safe to say that this violent visual depiction of FASHION WEEK’s “Heroin Chic” deploys the track in a more ruthless way than one may envision when simply hearing the song. For a line of starlets-to-be, their most important tryout ever quickly becomes the end of the line, very literally, in the video, which was created in Russia, written and directed by Dmitry (Deems) Kopytin with director of photography Alexey Khruslov, and produced by Marina Shponko.
For viewers who require a disclaimer about a video being brutal while scoping the video at their office job on company time, this is that disclaimer.

FASHION WEEK unites a cast of musicians who have formerly played with Jarboe, Man’s Gin, Nakatomi Plaza, Go Deep, Family, Vampillia and more. Their Prêt-à-Porter debut was engineered by Andrew Schneider (Cave In, Unsane, East Of The Wall), and unloads a flood of underground grunge metal and noise rock runoff in their own caustic and severely infectious concoction. Prêt-à-Porter saw a February 2015 release through France-based noise mongers Solar Flare Records, home to Pigs, Sofy Major, American Heritage, The Great Sabaini and more. Orders for the album are available HERE and HERE.
