The Peep Tempel give us one of the vids of the year in Rayguns

Coloured spandex and a powerful message from the Melbourne punks.

Brightly coloured spandex shorts, dodgy green screen action and dance moves that would make Peter Garrett himself blush are all on display in the video for The Peep Tempel's new tune, Rayguns. The Melbourne punks have dished up one of the best, most entertaining videos of 2016 here - and they've delivered a pointed message in the process. Featuring lines like: "We can see you bigots, picket lines of suburban household tyrants" and the immensely catchy chorus cry of: "The regime is coming, and they're all on ICE!", Rayguns sees The Peep Tempel take aim at mainstream media and news outlets and land some hefty blows. Frontman Blake Scott explains: "The lyrics are straight forward, there is no mystery regarding the target of this rant. We hope the clip – dudes in bad wardrobe bouncing from one ridiculous scene to the next – reflects the absurdity of intolerance.”

Rayguns comes from The Peep Tempel's third LP, Joy, due out on October 14 - and you can catch the fellas and all of their finest moves live when they hit stages around Aus this November and December for the Joy Album Tour.
