GAG: Olympia Hardcore Punks Drop Twisted Music Video for “Nobody’s Smile” (PREMIERE)

Clocking in just under the 20-minute mark, GAG's most recent album, Still Laughing, is a pissed-off-sounding affair. There's no reinventing the wheel going on, just furious bursts of hardcore punk coming at ya, sometimes fast, other times stomping to a mid-tempo rhythm.

In addition to Still Laughing, the group also dropped a compilation called Killing for Both Realities 3 '92 LP, a collection of tracks from their early EPs.

Ever since forming out of Olympia, WA in 2011, GAG has toured throughout North America, Mexico, and Europe, sharing stages with such bands as Jesus Piece, Turnstile, and White Wards.

Today, No Echo is premiering the official music video for "Nobody's Smile," a brain-beater from the Still Laughing album. Dedicated to the late great Riley Gale of Power Trip, the twisted clip was directed by Alex Cooper:

"Nobody's Smile" lyrics:
Toxic strength 
Rotten trench
Skin melting
Bombs dropping
Boots stomping
People hiding
Bodies spoiling
Nobody smiling
Manufactured killing machine
Shot for shot kill for kill
Endless suffering endless pain
Nobody wins at this game
Monstrous power 
WAR. War is death
Death is profit
Profit is war
