American Wrestlers recently released a new video for “Give Up,” the first single off their sophomore album, Goodbye Terrible Youth, out now on Fat Possum. The video is centered on the band performing in a recording studio with a mysterious Plant Man working for the boards in the background. It was filmed at Steve Albini’s Chicago studio, Electrical Audio. Here’s what frontman Gary McClure has to say about it:
I wanted a very simple video, which had one other odd element that remained unexplained. The band performing in the studio felt like the most straightforward and it was a little bit of a throwback. I always wanted to record in Electrical Audio in Chicago. It's a very beautiful building inside and out and they had all these cool looking instruments ready to pick up and play. Of course, the whole thing could be a witty knife-in-the-back comment on 21st-century music. But that's unlikely.
The band will be touring throughout January. Goodbye Terrible Youth is now streaming and available for purchase on all services.
