LA crew Death Lens make stylish, genre-blurring punk, and today they’re back with a simmering rager called “Limousine.” The song comes with a music video, directed by Kaylinn Clotfelter, which AP is premiering.
“Limousine” is a tense track that feels reflective of Chairs Missing-era Wire and culminates in an eruption that continues the band’s thrilling ascent. Death Lens — Bryan Torres (vocals), Matt Silva (guitar), Jhon Reyes (guitar, backing vocals), Eduardo Contreras (bass), and Tony Rangel (drums) — have opened for Militarie Gun, Together Pangea, and Forever Came Calling, among others, and recently signed to Epitaph Records, where they made their label debut with the single “Vacant.”

“‘Limousine’ pushes the narrative of how lessons learned through media, socials, and television never benefit the underdogs,” the band exclusively tell AP. “Instead, it gives us examples of life expectations we should follow and rules we need to agree with to reach their level of high standards. It’s our angry anthem and our light at the end of the tunnel for those looking to find motivation and joy in what they have and what we can genuinely attain without feeling pushed to change, to not be ourselves.”
