VIDEO : The New Pornographers – “War On The East Coast”

“We were going for some mid nineties second tier brit pop attitude. 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.” – Carl Newman

“War On The East Coast” is the first video from the upcoming album by The New Pornographers, ‘Brill Bruisers’ (August 25). As you can see, Carl, Dan Bejar and director Thom Glunt weren’t hesitant to depict the destruction of a major North American city, but I should stress this is not documentary footage. On the pseudo-apocalyptic scale not only do I think this video kicks Michael Bay’s ass (about time, too), but the song’s incredible. Wait ’til you hear the whole album.

A limited edition multi-colored paint splattered version of the LP is available through the Matador and New Pornographers webstores. Pre-order the limited edition LP and receive a 3D poster and 3D glasses (while supplies last)
