In the most recent video, Gaten appears as the lead singer, and is surrounded by bandmates as they rock through Jimmy Eat World's The Middle.

Another purple-hued image shows the young actor addressing a crowd while clad in a grey t-shirt emblazoned with a black spider.

A video from what looks to be the same night shows the band playing the 1991 classic Porch by Pearl Jam.

It seems there may be a bit of a musical rivalry developing amongst the Stranger Things cast, as it happens that co-star Finn Wolfhard also heads up a burgeoning musical group.
