Man On Man (Faith No More) Premiere “It’s So Fun (To Be Gay)” Video

Man On Man, the band featuring Faith No More’s Roddy Bottum and his boyfriend Joey Holman, have premiered a new video for their new song “It’s So Fun (To Be Gay).” This track is from their self-titled debut album, which will be released on May 7.

The duo commented:

“We wanted “It’s So Fun (To Be Gay)” to feel organic and warm with a strong, universal message. For the video we aimed to focus on our community. Getting through the hardships of the past year we leaned heavily on what we mean to each other in terms of support and understanding. We were in the middle of launching our Chosen Family project and had just finished linking people up for our pen pal program and sourcing art for our quarterly zine. We thought the best way to exhibit the joy in the song would be to have a video full of our chosen family – friends, peers, and heroes. So, we asked friends to share their love and lives and these queer testimonials are what make up the bulk of the video. Our togetherness and bond is key to moving forward in these times especially and we aimed to capture that bond and essence, particularly with Gay Pride 2021 on the horizon. It felt fitting to donate the launch-day’s sales to Born Perfect, which is a non-profit whose mission is to end conversion therapy.“

Man On Man (Faith No More) Premiere “Stohner” Video

Man On Man, the band featuring Faith No More’s Roddy Bottum and his boyfriend Joey Holman, have premiered a new video for their new song “Stohner.” This track is from their self-titled debut album, which will be released on May 7. The duo commented:

“We wrote ‘Stohner’ as a way to shake off the dust of paranoia from the first stages of quarantine. We aimed to make something bold and performative, giving our listeners a world that’s familiar while showcasing new sounds and visuals. ‘Stohner’ is a reckoning; it’s an exit from isolation into togetherness. As we continue to tell the story of queer love and tenderness, it was important for us to showcase our affection in new and exciting ways. With our video, we answered the question we often ask ourselves as artists: How do we show people something they’ve never seen before?”

Man On Man (Faith No More) Premiere “1983” Video

Man On Man, the band featuring Faith No More’s Roddy Bottum and his boyfriend Joey Holman, have premiered a new video for their new song “1983.” This track is from the duo’s self-titled debut album, which will be released on May 7.

The band commented:

“We found the concept of outdoor cruising and anonymous hookups particularly interesting in this barren chapter of history. While sex apps have nearly obliterated IRL hookups and the pandemic currently forbids human contact, ‘1983’ is a heartfelt homage to an era that glorified danger, anonymous encounters and sex positivity.

We worked with Steven Harwick (Macy Rodman, Kembra Pfahler, Christeene) in our first video with a collaborating director and set out to achieve a visually wild and vibrant palette inspired by references of a bygone sexual revolution. CRUISING, CHRISTIANE F and the work of Alvin Baltrop are all cited as influences of complicated and often times problematic and challenging voices of outsider liberation in the piece. The outdoor scenes in the video were shot in the notorious Vale of Cashmere, the section of Prospect Park in Brooklyn that’s been an outdoor cruising destination since the 1970’s.”

“There was a magnification of emotions in isolation that we focused on and the intensity of our union took on an almost spiritual nature. Our musical references were gospel and choir combined with dirty, drone-y rock. It’s a love song about adoration and soul and relationship in the modern age.”

Man On Man’s (Faith No More) “Daddy” Video Returns To YouTube

Man On Man, the band featuring Faith No More’s Roddy Bottum and his boyfriend Joey Holman, have announced that their video for “Daddy” has officially returned to YouTube. This news comes after the clip was previously removed due to “sexual violations.”

YouTube issued the following statement to Rolling Stone:

“With the massive volume of videos on our site, sometimes we make the wrong call. When it’s brought to our attention that a video has been removed mistakenly, we act quickly to reinstate it. We also offer uploaders the ability to appeal removals and we will re-review the content.”

The band also commented:

“It’s clear tech companies are lacking in representation and therefore discriminate against skin color, age, sex, and sexuality. Even if YouTube does value and promote diversity, the truth is, the industry is still playing by straight men’s rules. It’s devaluing when we see Google monopolize on our Pride but do so little to actually enhance and protect the LGBTQIA+ digital experience. We’re asking for an equitable playing field.”

“We’re setting out ultimately to document this odd time in the history of the world and to address the importance of creativity and togetherness.
