They say that good guitar tone has nothing to do with good amps or pedals or your instrument, but that great tone comes from the hands. Moon Duo is out to prove that theory in a different way in their new video for "Animal" above. Featuring pro skateboarder Richie Jackson, Moon Duo 's video features Jackson ripping on everything BUT a skateboard, from pitchforks to keyboards to dollies and beyond. Check it out above.

So how did Moon Duo arrive at Jackson?

“We loved Richie Jackson’s skate videos, the idea of a psychedelic skater, something outside of the norm. We contacted him and he had the idea of doing the world’s first skate video without a skateboard, and we were sold right there."

Look for synth-driven post-punk track "Animal" to appear on Moon Duo's forthcoming seven-inch of the same name, as well as the Shadow of the Sun LP due on March 3rd.
