Washington, DC trio Ex Hex - fronted by former Wild Flag member Mary Timony - have shared new track ‘Tough Enough’ and its accompanying, tongue-in-cheek apocalyptic video.
Proving that rock’n’roll WILL actually save us after all, the video finds the band playing in a suitably grainy, scuzzy room before having to flee a massive explosion and tough it out in an underground bunker by bench-pressing guitars. Obvs.
Of the track, the band say: “‘Tough Enough’ is all about three-dimensional power chords interplaying with whammy dive bombs. It’s a song about turning on your tough switch and forging ahead through whatever storms are happening around you ’cause you have no choice.”
‘It’s Real’ is set for release on 22nd March, while you can catch the band live in May during a run of UK tour dates.

The track features on latest album ‘It’s Real’.
Every bit as essential as last time out.
The group’s second LP is out next month.
Returning with a second slab of fuzzy riffage, the Washington power trio are keeping it classic and adding a little… Def Leppard to the mix?
