Johnny Foreigner reveal new ‘If You Can’t Be Honest, Be Awesome’ track

Not just a motto to live by - the first tease of new album ‘Mono No Aware’ is a sugar rush high like no other.

After announcing their new album last week, Johnny Foreigner have revealed ‘If You Can’t Be Honest, Be Awesome’, its first single.

Capturing the foursome on their most frenetic form to date, it’s all spiralling melodies and razor-toothed screeching. “This was the easiest video shoot we’ve ever done,” frontman Alexei Berrow admitted to Noisey of the track’s accompanying, cartoonish vid. “We just hung a green sheet on a wall in our studio and pretend to play for an afternoon. Slightly worried that our progressively more stoned eyes mess with the continuity but we also forgot about the big green X taped on Kel’s amp so w/e.”

w/e, indeed. ‘Mono No Aware’, the group’s new album, is set for release via Alcopop! Records on July 8th - more on that here, and catch up with our ‘in the studio’ chat with the band.
