New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth the exclusive video premiere for “Boxeador” by Jack Names The Planets. The song centers around continuing to get up after being knocked down, akin to being in a boxing ring — which is where parts of the music video are shot. The song’s themes are deep, tying to beating addiction and purifying oneself, with a high amount of energy and fun surging from the band’s vivacious instrumentals.
“The song is an analogy for struggling with addiction and finding a reason to hope that lost dreams could still come true no matter how old you are, or how much addiction takes from you, or how unlikely it may seem. The ending is left intentionally ambiguous to reflect reality. There are very few happy endings in these types of stories, but there is always hope if you’re willing to fight for it, and you just might be amazed at what you’re capable of.” – Shane
“I’ve always thought boxing was inspiring and melancholy all at the same time. To commit to the sport, you have to love it. But ironically the thing that they love results in brain damage, pugilistic dementia, and very often does not have a happy ending.” – CP
“We all have our demons to fight. It’s not always about how many times you get knocked down but how many times you stand up and keep fighting. Working with videographers Austin and Cameron is always a treat. Having them on board was a no-brainer when planning our first music video. The two of them are a riot and talented to boot. The video is a montage of our camaraderie, as well as a homage to the sport of boxing. A huge thank you to Old Dog Boxing Club in Raritan for giving us free reign of the gym!” – Jarred
“In my professional opinion, it rocks. We have never heard CP rip a solo like that before, nor will we ever again.” – Josh
