As CHAT PILE prepare for their upcoming sold out tour with Lingua Ignota in February, the band have released a new music video for God’s Country standout track, ‘Tropical Beaches, Inc.’ Of the song, the band comments, “‘Tropical Beaches, Inc.’ is a favorite among the band, and probably the song that’s the most fun to play live. It has some of the dumbest riffs on the whole album and we gleefully lose a couple brain cells every time we play it.”
They continue, “The song itself is about the poisonous quest for endless wealth and status in America as seen through the eyes of late MLM pitchman Don Lapre. The Twyford-Rigleys worked out their own incredible interpretation of the song with this labor of love and managed to capture the spirit behind ‘Tropical Beaches, Inc.’ in their own very cool way. We absolutely love the DIY, midnight-movie vibe of the video, which speaks to our deep-cut VHS loving hearts!”
