“Dangers Of Convenience” Criminal Hygiene

LA’s Criminal Hygiene includes Michael Fiore (vocals, guitars, keys), Michael Hiller (vocals, bass, guitars) and Sean “Birdman” Erickson (drums, percussion). The band are happy to present the music video for “Dangers Of Convenience,” the fourth single off the band’s LP, Run It Again (pre-order). As a track providing commentary on certain relationships we maintain simply for the convenience factor, the clip was helmed by Jon Sortland of The Shins and filmed in the Yucca Valley on a $50 bribe. The band will be touring North America this spring with Swervedriver and Failure.

Criminal Hygiene’s Michael Fiore had the following to say about the meaning of the track and video;

“In a world where everything is seemingly in reach at the touch of a button on a screen, we wanted to show that convenience factors can ultimately lead to one’s death, either on the smallest, most asinine levels (portrayed in the video) or on a larger scale that you can imagine. The song is about relationships but the video is hinting something bigger.”
