Middle Class Rut Debut Video for "Pick Up Your Head", Watch + Share; Now on Tour with Chevelle

Now on Tour with Chevelle
"Zack Lopez and Sean Stockham have built a career that many would envy." - Albuquerque Journal
Comprised of vocalist/guitarist Zack Lopez and vocalist/drummer Sean Stockham, Middle Class Rut raised the bar with their latest release, June 2013’s Pick Up Your Head (Bright Antenna Records), which sees the duo opening up their sound. Courtesy of MTV Buzzworthy watch HERE as cartoonized versions of Zack and Sean watch heads roll through an adventurous dream world in the new video for the album’s title track.

Mixed by Grammy winning producer Dave Sardy (Johnny Cash, LCD Soundsystem, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds), Pick Up Your Head was produced by the duo working alone in the studio. “We wanted to have a distinct sound,” Lopez says. “Instead of jamming together, I’d write a bass line or a vocal melody. Sean would lay down a tempo and we’d write around that. For percussion, we’d use whatever was laying around– pots and pans, an old desk– anything with a nice crack and ring to it.”
Also known for past tours with the likes of Muse, Social Distortion, Them Crooked Vultures, Alice In Chains, 30 Seconds To Mars and Linkin Park, Middle Class Rut are currently on the road with Chevelle. Head below to see a full list of upcoming tour dates.
