Just a month ago the female-fronted Alternative Hard Rockers Accidental President released their self-titled debut album. This week, the band has released a music video for their song Hateful.
Check out the video for ‘Hateful’ below:
Accidental President state about Hateful: “Caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Targeted for your appearance. Taken advantage of. Attacked for being who you are. Held against your will. Disrespected. Objectified. Depersonalised. Brutalised. Dehumanised. But this time, YOU get to have the last say. A song of strength in desperation inspired by the testimony of an escaped abductee #respect #hateful”
If not obvious by the name, Accidental President is a band that wants to share their ethos of social awareness. This is especially relevant in our current times of political upheaval and inequalities around the world. The band connects with their listeners on a level much greater than just the music.
Hard work and passion are the backbones of a successful band and Accidental President fits the bill perfectly. Originally formed in 2015, the group has gone through a long, hard road of ‘Spinal Tap-esqe’ lineup changes and life events that caused a lot of pitfalls in their development. Their passion never slowed though and Accidental President used these challenges as motivation to build something spectacular that is now ready for the world to hear.
The Sydney, Australia based band has formed their own brand of hard rock mixed heavily with goth and metal influences. Adding to their intrigue and performance, Accidental President throws in a theatrical flair to grab all of your senses.
