Video of The Day: A Place to Bury Strangers

There's a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

In honor of their show tonight at DC9, let's all take a look at the newly-released A Place to Bury Strangers video for "Too Tough To Kill." Director Colin Marchon calls the clip an "America-sploitation video in response to the frustratingly stagnant state of the country."

Marchon's collage work featuring guns, bros, and an anatomical penis deftly visualizes the band's cutting, snarling vexation. "Too Tough To Kill," from the excellent new APTBS record Pinned, has that divine frantic clamor so often found in the band's songs. Who knows, it may even be something they play tonight at DC9, and/or at one of the other dates on their tour (that kicks off this very evening). Dates below. Go see this band.
