Hoist the Colors Revisit Stand by Me

Hoist the Colors bring a unique collaborative sound, fusing pop-punk energy with traditional Irish and country instruments like fiddle and mandolin. “The beauty of this band is that there is nothing we can’t do, no genre or style we won’t explore,” says bandleader Josh Linden. For “Gordie Lachance,” the Southern California band thinks back to the 1986 movie Stand by Me and borrows its theme of lasting friendship and growing up. Its video follows the classic film, too, which raises an important question: “You guys wanna go see a dead body?”
