The New Pornographers have revealed the video for "War on the East Coast," from their forthcoming album, Brill Bruisers. The clip features Dan Bejar and A.C. Newman as the stars of their own single-shot action flick: The pair winds through city streets as chaos erupts around them, and eventually they drive off in a shiny car. "In the past, I've never really wanted to be in the video," Newman told Pitchfork. "But with this, we wanted to have fun and fully be in the video." "War on the East Coast" is the second single to surface from the forthcoming LP, which drops August 26 via Matador. Last month, the Vancouver indie stalwarts revealed the title track from Bill Bruisers—click here to check it out.
