Exclusive: XFactor1 Premiere New Music Video, “The Stroke”

Hard rockers XFactor1 have been climbing up the rock charts with their second single, a cover of “The Stroke” by Billy Squier. The song is featured on their album Famous.Last.Words., which came out on Megaforce Records earlier this year. Now the band is debuting the video for the track right here right now.

“Obviously this video was a hella good time to make,” XFactor1 frontman Ricky “Qball” Wolf says. “Hot chicks, booze, and hanging out with our friends is why XFactor1 keeps pushing for more. Our goal was to personify the original meaning of this Billy Squier classic. Because so few people actually know its about the music business. Bring on the decadence! It’s what rock is all about.”

Check out the video below, and let us know what you think in the comments. And for more info on the band, visit their Facebook page.
