3Teeth (opens in new tab) have released a video for their new single President X.

It’s the latest track taken from the Californian outfit’s upcoming album Metawar, which will arrive on July 5 through Century Media.

The band previously shared videos for American Landfill (opens in new tab), Exxxit (opens in new tab) and Affluenza (opens in new tab) from the record.

Frontman Alexis Mincolla explains: “President X is about an arbitrary figurehead that will continue to be replaced, repositioned and repackaged to maintain an illusion of choice and difference in a system that operates on auto-pilot.

“As the administration pendulum swings back and forth in our bi-partisan shit show, you basically get a new leader who comes in with the goal of undoing what the last guy did, continuing this cycle of futility.

“It’s like one of those TV shows that just keeps going on season after season, walking you in circles by throwing in new hackneyed characters and the same trite notions of conflict but, in reality, the story has no arc and no resolution.

“By the time the season finale comes, oh and it will come, you're going to look back on it go, ‘Holy fuck! I want my money back.’ And no, I’m not talking metaphorical money, I'm talking about your actual tax dollars that funded a hot trash show."

Mincolla adds: “I believe there was a fine scholar by the name of Frank Zappa who once said, ‘Government is the entertainment division of the military-industrial complex.’”

3Teeth will head out on tour across Europe with Ministry (opens in new tab) later this month, before returning to North America for further shows throughout the summer.
