Published Jul 16, 2014Next month, long-running, once Vancouver-based supergroup the New Pornographers will return with their new album Brill Bruisers. We've heard the album's title track, and today we get another taste of the release with a video for the song "War on the East Coast."
The video was shot by Thom Gunt, and is comprised of one long shot that follows Dan Bejar and Carl Newman through a city as it crumbles at the hands of war.
"We were going for some mid-nineties second-tier Britpop attitude," Newman said in a press release. "In the past, I've never really wanted to be in the video. But with this, we wanted to have fun and fully be in the video."
Watch the video for "War On the East Coast" below. Brill Bruisers is due out on August 26 through Matador in the U.S. and Last Gang Records here in Canada.
