Watch The New Pornographers Combative “War on the East Coast” Video


The New Pornographers have premiered a video for “War on the East Coast,” the first single from the band’s forthcoming album, Brill Bruisers (due August 25 through Last Gang Records).

Directed by Thom Glunt, the video is at least in part the result of a change in attitude by New Pornographers frontman A.C. Newman.

“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,” says Newman. “But with this, we wanted to have fun and fully be IN the video.”
