VIDEO: HOWLER – ‘BACK OF YOUR NECK’

Howler have released a video for their new single ‘Back of Your Neck’ (directed by Robert Semmer). In it the boys take us on a tour of the backstreets, house parties, gigs and supermarkets of their hometown Minneapolis – in all its grainy, Super 8 glory. The video premiered on Rolling Stone yesterday, whom singer Jordan Gatesmith told: “We made this video with our good friend Rob. He got us drunk, held us in his arms and told us it would be alright. And it was… It was.”

Howler will release their debut album America Give Up on 13 January 2012 via Rough Trade/Remote Control.
