It seems that Ex-Hex is back and stronger than ever. With their upcoming album It’s Real dropping in late March, the trio has more great licks and eighties inspired tuneage on their latest singles. In their new video for the track, “Tough Enough” they keep the solid rock coming while weathering the apocalypse in the process.
As for the song, it’s all Ex-Hex, complete with snappy drums, thick riffs, and Mary Timony’s vocals up front. The music is not only what you’ve come to expect from these three, it’s exactly what you want. Ex-Hex have the ability to remind us of the past without sounding dated and this song represents that well. The video is whimsical in its own right, starting as a typical behind the scenes video shoot, and somehow ending a year later with the band rocking out through the end of days.
You can stream the video above or on YouTube, you can stream the song on all streaming sites as well as purchase it in all digital shops including Bandcamp. You can also preorder It’s Real from Merge Records ahead of its release date of March 22. Ex-Hex will be on tour beginning April 02 at Richmond Music Hall in Richmond, VA until June 07 at Privatclub in Berlin. A complete list of their tour dates can be found here.
