New Obits Video Starring Cartoon Version of Obits

Bed & Bugs, the most recent album from Obits, was released in the fall of 2013 on Sub Pop Records. Between then and now, and in an effort to highlight the excellent qualities of their third full-length album, the band has toured these United States and Europe and released a couple of other, very good music videos. There’s one for the song “Spun Out” and also one for the song “Operation Bikini” (in which, as one Youtube commenter astutely observed, there are no bikinis). And now, there is a new and really, very great animated video for the number “I’m Closing In” which was directed by Paul Clark. Please make sweet click with the embed to watch it!

This May, Obits will be playing two shows here in the U.S. before heading to Brazil for both the Sub Pop Festival in Sao Paulo and the Bananada Festival in Goiania, Brazil. Labelmates Mudhoney and METZ will be playing both of those Brazilian festivals along with Obits.

Recent live footage from Spain’s Radio 3 and the newly posted KEXP live session the band recorded here in Seattle this past November both demonstrate the undeniable appeal of Obits’ live shows. Please get into it.

Upcoming live performances by Obits:

May 10 - Brooklyn, NY at The Wick (with The Men and Nude Beach)

May 13 - Atlanta, GA at The Earl

May 15 - Sao Paulo, Brazil at the Sub Pop Festival (at Audio) (with Mudhoney and METZ)

May 16 - Goiania, Brazil at the Bananada Festival (with Mudhoney and METZ)
