Against Me! get intergalactic this week in the music video for their new song, “Crash.” The song is taken off the band’s upcoming record, Shape Shift With Me, due out on September 16th.
Though the video clip is about as low budget as it gets, that isn’t going to ruin the vibes of how the band feels about it. Drummer Atom Willard (jokingly) talked about the difficulty of the video’s creation in a recent press release, saying:
This was one of the most difficult videos we’ve ever made because it was filmed in outer space. The time it took to get there alone was enough to make some bands back down from the challenge, but we really believed it was the only way to fully realize our vision.
“Crash” is the third song released thus far from Shape Shift With Me and is available to download on digital retailers along with “Haunting, Haunted, Haunts” and lead single “333.”
There’s a lot to prepare for in the coming months in the world of Against Me!: in addition to Shape Shift With Me, the band kicks off their nationwide tour with Bad Religion on September 30th. Frontwoman Laura Jane Grace will also be releasing her memoir Tranny: Confessions of Punk Rock’s Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout in November.
Suffice to say, it’s a good time to be a fan of the band.
