Lawrence, KS Duo Arc Flash Share “Future” Video with Impose

Carbon Copy Out Today on High Dive Records

Spring Tour Dates Announced with Dressy Bessy, Howardian & more

Lawrence, Kansas duo Arc Flash’s debut album Carbon Copy is out today on High Dive Records. To celebrate, the band are sharing a new music video for “Future,” one of the album’s many energetic highlights. The duo of Mark Rockwell (drums) and James Thomblison (guitar/vocals) have been generating a buzz throughout the scene thanks to endlessly energetic shows and their own unique brand of “space punk” and “mutant pop” intensity. Built on blistering punk energy, infectious hooks, and raw fuzz riffs, the band’s sound is as sonically pleasing as it is aggressively catchy.

Speaking about the video Impose shared:

with frantic instrumentals and an intense and exhilarating amount of vocal reverb, we are brought into a room full of old TVs. As the majority of the television sets broadcast static, we are thrown into the largely purple world of a slightly nostalgic sound and a hip swaying beat. But hold on until the end, when skiing masks make an appearance and entertaining confusion ensues.”

Arc Flash are on tour now with Howardian, Dressy Bessy, and Condor & Jaybird. Complete dates can be found below.

Arc Flash mixes the abrasive with the undeniably catchy to create music that can transfix even the shortest of attention spans. Blistering without repelling, the duo mixes punk, noise, surf, and pop into music that is both fun and visceral. The sound is taut without losing its carefree feel. Equally comfortable in a moldy basement as an elegant hall, Arc Flash makes any environment their own (keep an eye out for roving gangs of masked sci-fi hooligans). Like the electrical phenomena for which it is named, Arc Flash is unpredictable and bombastic.

“two Kansas cosmonauts who, as the band’s name suggests, sling incendiary, freewheeling fuzz-punk … Beware of high voltage, heavy riffs and catchy hooks — just don’t say I didn’t warn you.” – Clrvynt


Carbon Copy is the perfect sonic embodiment of the term the band from which the band takes its name, which was used during Thomblison’s first day at tech school for electrical construction to describe “the electrical phenomenon when electricity jumps through air.” The energy is palpable on every track” – Uproxx
