Here's Unknown Mortal Orchestra's video for "From the Sun" directed by Rick Alverson, the guy who directed and co-wrote the Comedy with Tim Heidecker. It follows a guy who looks strikingly like Ben Affleck as he sits through a series of lickings, abuses, and humiliations at the hands of a group of hip, artsy teens speculating on the event.
The dark-humored video has to reflect the pain of the band, who have been on the road since last December. They just announced another set of US and European tour dates for the rest of 2013. Check out the tour dates below, and buy their new album II here, via Jagjagwar. Stay strong dudes.
