Activator Premiere New Music Video, "Sexy for Breakfast," Featuring Sergio Vega of the Deftones and Quicksand

Activator Premiere New Music Video,

NYHC/thrash crossover quartet Activator has teamed with Revolver to premiere of the new video for the song “Sexy for Breakfast," off the band’s self-titled debut album, out now. The clip was directed by Mateo Suarez and features a cameo by Sergio Vega from the Deftones and Quicksand.

"'Sexy For Breakfast' is basically a thought of how infidelity and heartbreak affect the rationale," comments lead singer Shannon T. Moore, who, while having been a fixture in the hardcore scene since the ’80s, also has serious hip-hop credibility with his other job as hype-man for legendary emcee/producer El-P during live performances and tours. "When I came up with the idea for the video, I wanted a Latin dude to play the other man. Sergio is a good friend of mine and I just happened to be with him when it crossed my mind. I asked him and he said yes. I originally wanted him to be in a lot more of the video, but between Deftones and Quicksand, we were lucky to get him to stand out in the cold with us for that long. Another fun fact, [Quicksand frontman] Walter Schreifels was with us on set for a portion of it."
