“Before You is planted firmly within the contemporary pop-punk idiom, but hints at some interesting departures from the formula… Good work!” – Andy Mulkerin, Pittsburgh City Paper


Pittsburgh, PA | February 28, 2013 – Pittsburgh based pop-punkers Before You are excited to unveil their “Bad Habits and the Sunshine State” music video today exclusively with PunkVideosRock. The song features special guest vocals from fellow Pittsburgh pop-punker Steven Soboslai of Punchline and was recorded at Bad Boxes Studios with Harrison Wargo. When asked about creating the Bad Habits music video, bassist/vocalist Philip Arena commented,


 “We are so excited for everyone to see our first official music video for our song, Bad Habits and the Sunshine State, from our debut EP, Meet Me at Whisper Lake,. This music video features the relationship between a boy and a girl who are genuinely in love. It follows them on a cold afternoon walking around a frozen lake and eventually running into some friends for some fun in the snow. The meaning behind all of the events that take place is basically, no matter what your day entails, at the end of it all, the most important thing is being able to enjoy time with the ones that you love. Jacob Bonham directed this music video and is one of the most creative, adaptive, and easy to work with individuals that this music scene has to offer. I believe that in the first few seconds you will be able to tell how hard we all worked on this, and how much fun we had making it.”
