Hemmit

Portland, Oregon garage-rock/powerpop duo Hemmit kicks off the release of their 4th album “Straight Outta Nowhere” with a global lip-sync video for “Brohemoth”, the album’s first single. The ambitious video was a co-creation of fans, dancers, models and performers from around the world who submitted footage of themselves lip-syncing and rocking out to the song.


Filmmakers and performers from Berlin (w/Luna Trash), Barcelona, Tokyo, British Columbia, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, San Francisco, San Diego (w/Raven Lynette), Seattle, Portland, Eugene, OR and Madison, WI all contributed to the project. The piece includes footage from nearly 50 fans and performers who created their own mini-videos of the song in outdoor locations around the world. The footage was sent to Hemmit headquarters in Portland, OR and edited together to create a seamless, global lip-sync performance of the song.


The video premiere coincides with the release of Hemmit's latest full-length “Straight Outta Nowhere” which features 11 tracks of guitar rock and pop with influences drawn from 60’s Rock, Punk, Power Pop and Garage Rock. The Rolling Stones “19th Nervous Breakdown” is the album’s sole cover and Hemmit supercharges the Stones’ garage-rocker with trademark punk swagger.

“Straight Outta Nowhere” is the follow-up to 2014’s “Antimatter”. Boston’s renowned WMBR selected “Antimatter’s” lead track “15 Minutes” as a Best of 2014 song and Indie Rock Cafe selected the album as a Top DIY Album of 2014.

Hemmit is based in Portland, OR and the recording duo have been creating riff-heavy rock and pop gems since the early 2000's, mixing garage rock, punk and power pop into a melodic and energetic brew.
