The raucous good time Tacoma punkers of C.F.A. (Cody Foster Army) have announced that the second of four upcoming videos is ready for public consumption, and the heavy rockin’ trio is partnering up with The Ripple Effect for the world premiere on July 24th.
The video for “Sons of the Soil” is another hysterical walk down the CFA brand of stonercore rock! Check it out at this location.
As Cody Foster says, “Alright this one is a video that CFA as a band had to reach out to friends for supplies/material donations. CFA had to build a set one evening and then film on another and tear it down the day after. This was so the other bands that share the space didn’t have their schedules interrupted.”
The video footage for the song “Sons of the Soil” was shot on June 19th 7.p.m. to 2 a.m. Foster turned 40 during the shoot. “Trying not to give away what we did,” Foster said, “We can say that the concept is one of those considered, classic physical comedy.” The proof is the heating pad and ice pack being applied to Cody’s limbs that didn’t work upon waking up the next day, his first morning being 40.
CFA had the opportunity to be filmed by Jack Saffle, better known for shooting pro skaters for the past 10 years. He also brought with him Addie Stonack and Jaynee Schmidtke to capture a second prospective shooting style and still shots, adjusting lighting and camera angles and hanging from the ceiling. Stonack say’s Jack’s style is meticulous very clear and well executed. She referred to her style as more gorilla and combining the two is bad ass!
There will also be making of footage and stills available at the end of the video. You won’t want to miss this either.
The video for “Kick Rocks,” which was released earlier by C.F.A. and Ripple Music, is now playing at this location.
“Sons of the Soil” and “Kick Rocks” can both be found on C.F.A.‘s debut Ripple Music release,Managed By The Devil, Brought To You By The Grace Of God, which can be found through Nail Distribution throughout North America, Code 7 in the UK, and Clearspot International in Europe, as well as the Ripple Music online store. – www.ripple-music.com
C.F.A reminds us that rock-n-roll is carefree, tumultuous, and above all . . . fun!
In 2008, the Tacoma, Washington trio of Cody Foster, Dave “Reno” Maerseillan, and David Takata took a lifetime of musical influences and put their talents together to create C.F.A, a stoner-fied take on unabashed rock n’ roll and punk. Being influenced by the last three decades of music, C.F.A. is the missing link connecting those eras of music. After honing their collective chops through unrelenting and incendiary live performances, the band decided it was time to hole up in the studio.
In 2009, C.F.A. called upon the acclaimed engineer/producer Tony Reed (Stone Axe/Mos Generator) to best capture the aforementioned live energy in a studio setting. Reed recorded most of the album at Temple Sound with completion of the project taking place at his personal studio, HeavyHead Recording Co. The decision was finally made to release C.F.A’s full length album on Ripple Music, titled Managed by the Devil, Brought to You by the Grace of God, which will be available to a world-wide audience on October 23rd, 2012.
