Here Is Japanther's New Video
Here's Brooklyn scuzz-rock jokesters Japanther's new video for "Come Back Home," a song about the deep pain that accompanies someone stabbing your heart over and over again with the old break-up knife. The video, animated by Amber B. Dianda, follows the torrid love that exists between chickens and worms the world over. Captured in glorious stop motion, we see Mr. Worm dealing with his lover's death the way we all do - cannibalism. If you like the purdy drawings, the band is auctioning off a small number of original animation cells to benefit a depression/anxiety charity - you can pick up a cell and fight the happy fight right here.
The video is from their new record, Beets, Limes & Rice, which came out last year on Recess Records, Lauren Records, and Japanther's own label, Tapes Records. You can pick up the vinyl right here, and if you're American, they're playing in your country this spring and summer. Full schedule below:
