As a band with so much to say, National Pride is a message to a generation that looks at the state of the world and wonders how we got to where we are!
Vocalist George Garnett explains, “National pride is a song for people who take patriotism too seriously. A hard-hitting tune with a simple message and big riffs.”. Josh Rogerson (Guitar) expands, “National pride is a commentary on some pretty serious issues we’re facing in Britain, such as a certain group that’s currently in power… But yeah, it’s a cracking tune!”

The video was the latest victim of Covid-19, having had a slick official video shoot sidelined led to the band going through all their footage and piecing together a chronology of their time together. With just under a year to their journey, Smiling Assassin hit the ground running and haven’t stopped since!
Robbie Johnson (Drums) created the montage video for National Pride, here’s what he has to say about it:
“The current situation sucks and it would have been awesome to release our originally planned video. But I actually had so much fun editing this one! I’m constantly filming whatever we get up to and to be able to go through all the footage since we started this band a little under a year ago and see the journey and how far we’ve come was pretty special. I’m honored to be a part of this and to be amongst such close and inspiring friends.”
