Rock juggernaut Fastest Land Animal (FLA) have released the explosive music video for their punk rock-influenced cover of The Police classic “Next To You.” The innovative video kicks off with band members Screamin’ Jack Novak, Alfonse Castillo, and Shark Samuels performing in their own respective spaces before ultimately coming together for a grand finale. No strangers to DIY, FLA took making the video into their own hands to create something that is true to who they are as a group – gritty, occasionally off-kilter, and determined to rock. Watch the video for “Next To You” HERE.
Later this month FLA will jump on the road joining the legendary Tesla on their “Time to Rock Tour 2023.” No strangers to the stage, the band will be playing tracks off their latest album, East Coast, West Coast, In Between, the way it was meant to be heard – live, fast, and loud.
