New Developments for Puppet Rebellion

There is a lot of news to share in the Puppet Rebellion pipeline. The first item is that following the abrupt departure of their former frontman Simon Monaghan, the group is moving forward with Oliver Davies and releasing a new music video for the last single with Monaghan as lead vocalist.

That single is “Cupboards Painted Red” (available on iTunes starting Nov 3) off the band’s exhilarating EP ‘No Means Yes’ (read Eclectic Pop's review here). The song hopes to alert the public conscious to domestic violence and was inspired by Monaghan’s childhood experiences. The video, which contains no scenes of violence, tells its story through the visual of shattered glass.

It was conceptualized by Mat O’Brien whose previous collaborations include work with Passenger and LadyHawke. Expect new music from the band in early 2015 as they plan to head into the studio in November to record an upcoming single with freshly minted frontman Davies.
