Video Premiere: Total Fucking Destruction’s “Anal Trump is Gay”

Total Fucking Destruction lives in its own universe, which is totally fucked and in states of chaos and destruction on the best of days. Their latest album, #USA4TFD (which you can stream here) didn’t come out as originally scheduled last year due to a production snafu at label Give Praise Records, according to drummer Rich Hoak. The personal lives of its members – including returning guitarist, Steve “Pingdum” Morasco – are as chaotic and on the edge of out of control as their brand of redlining grind. The latest single from the band is the charmingly, but wholly apropos, titled “Anal Trump is Gay.” It’s a song that, in a handful of seconds, hearkens back to the days of Anal Cunt, their song titling scheme with references to the Hairspray-Can-in-Chief’s favourite band, which itself is a take on Sore Throat’s brevity-obsessed song writing style.

When we caught up with Hoak after a rousing set at this year’s Maryland Deathfest to ask about the David Hall-directed video, this is what he had to say:

#marylanddeathfest was huge for #therealtotalfuckingdestruction: totally fucking making grind great again: NO collusion whatsoever with #neckbearddeathcamp, #disassociate, #immolation, #drugsoffaith, #G.O.D. or #DRI.

re: “anal trump is gay” video: david hall #olfactorytrollfactory #uneasysleeper is doing some really really amazing fantastic great things. many say he was not paid by online “friends” to make this video. hall is currently making a film about the making of the meta-title #analtrumpisgay.  everyone can feel much safer now. #metagrindtitles.

absolutely NO obstruction by paul at #givepraiserecords of the new total fucking destruction album #USA4TFD. bigtime give praise has continually “unobstructed” the #USA4TFD release why no investigation/conspiracy?

also not fake news: #sethputnam was wrong about a lot of things, but #sethputnam was right about you.”
