On the heels of the release of their forth and most accomplished album, Hiding in Plain Sight, The Cringe are hitting the road with Trapt for select dates in November. In celebration of these upcoming dates, the band is sharing the video for “Rushing Through The World.” "Our good friend, Eric P. Sherman and his company Bang Zoom! Entertainment along with director Luke Stone, have cleverly grafted our lyrics onto a pop-culture collage that tips its hat to the space-age and the golden age of advertising,” explains The Cringe. “Like the song itself, the video deals with the information overload we're all blinded by, which does seem to be hurtling us toward some final landslide-unless we can find some truth within ourselves. And we think it's pretty fun to watch, too!"
The Cringe features John Cusimano on vocals, keyboards and rhythm guitar, celebrated drummer Shawn Pelton (SNL Band, Sheryl Crow), lead guitarist and singer James “Roto” Rotondi (Mr. Bungle, Air, The Grassy Knoll) and bassistJonny Blaze (Tina Parol, Alice Smith).
Through the band's career, they have accumulated a devoted fan base and won over fellow artists such as Bob Schneider, Vertical Horizon, and Sister Hazel, all of whom have invited The Cringe to accompany them on tour. They have additionally hit the stage alongside acts such as The New York Dolls, The Hold Steady, The Bravery and Fuel. Perhaps the biggest fan of the band is food celebrity and alt-rock aficionado Rachael Ray, who married Cusimano in 2005.
