Turn the sound up on your Tuesday with a new live video from MxPx. Their performance of “Secret Weapon” is going to get you cracking open a cold one & starting a mosh pit in your living room (and yeah, you’re gonna spill your beer like you’re back in the club).
Recorded during their last livestream show where they performed their legendary live album At the Show in full, “Secret Weapon” is a song that still punches as hard as the first time you heard it. “‘Secret Weapon’ was the last song I wrote for the whole album, and it’s the best song on it!” Mike Herrera says. “I brought Tom and Yuri a batch of new songs for what would become our Secret Weapon album, and they liked them, but Tom had a suggestion. He said, ‘There are some good songs in here, but we need an opening banger.’”
Herrera continues, “I agreed and went back to the drawing board one more time, and I came up with ‘Secret Weapon’.” Tom’s suggestion paid off—we can’t imagine our punked out party playlists without it. “When I showed the guys what I came up with, we instantly decided to call the album… Secret Weapon.”
“This song is here to give energy and life to all of us that need a little encouragement. You are your own secret weapon, it’s all up to you.”
“Secret Weapon” lives up to its name—from the get go the breakneck drums and spitfire lyrics come in to blow you away. And this live performance shows off how thrilling this song truly is as the band stays completely in sync with maximum power. “‘Secret Weapon’ has stealthily become one of the pillars of our live shows and it’s hard not to see why when the crowd goes bonkers as soon as the band kicks in,” Herrera says. “This song is here to give energy and life to all of us that need a little encouragement. You are your own secret weapon, it’s all up to you.”
If this has got you itching to get back to live shows, MxPx have got you covered—they’re gonna be performing live on the internet for their Between this World and the Next show on June 4 at 9:30pm ET / 6:30pm PT. Get your tickets at mxpx.com now!
“Between This World and the Next is our online show series. This will be Round 9! Prepare yourself for some songs we haven’t played yet and some deep cuts,” Herrera continues. “The show will be interactive so, jump in the chat, request a song, or even ask us some questions. This is NOT a pre-recorded set and we’re ready to have some fun! Anything can happen… especially LIVE.”
