A few weeks back, Holy Ghost! shared "Teenagers in Heat," a New Order-flavored outtake from the New York duo's upcoming Dynamics LP. Now, Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel have dropped a lively lyric video for the James Murphy-assisted track. Rather than focus on a slow crawl of text, the above video doubles as a love letter to Holy Ghost!'s hometown, as director Ben Fries reveals the song's lyrics by way of a bunch of stickers plastered throughout NYC. The four-minute short captures the Big Apple in the dog days of summer, turning a VHS-filtered lens on Coney Island, Union Square, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, and other landmarks. 

Meanwhile, the DFA stars are planning an extensive tour in support of their sophomore album, which arrives September 10. Holy Ghost! will play a handful of North American shows alongside New Order later this month, with a few headlining gigs to follow in August and September. The synth-savvy pair will hit the road once again in October and they'll remain on tour into November. Scroll down for details.
