Wavves have shared a brand new music video for "That's on Me" — a sour-toned slow-growler about grabbing life by the horns. While there are no bulls featured above, there is one very unfortunate pig who's fed to a ravenous gang of cheerleaders after being sliced and diced by sword demo king Lynn Thompson. When the clip opens, we see that rotund YouTube hero emerging from his yellow hot rod. Things get deliciously weird as he begins chopping soda bottles while the girls flash their pompoms and a Latin death-metal dude pretends he's Wavves. Then comes the meat. The resulting cuts are captured with a high-speed camera, so it's nearly as disturbing as it is fascinating to watch. All the ambient irreverence keeps the mood light enough, but one might think differently about bacon after watching a porcine skull smashed with the blunt end of a medieval axe. Then again, maybe not. "That's on Me" hails from the band's fourth album, Afraid of Heights.
