We are terrible actors and terrible liars. It’s the curse of valuing things that are honest and true above all else. It’s especially difficult when there are things that seem fun to do but then we’re not sure how to do it in a way that feels honest and true to the moment.
We wanted to make a video but do it on our terms. Sean Stout got it. So at the end of our 2013 fall tour we hung in LA for a day, rented a room, borrowed a PA, bought some beer, and invited some people over. We played a set, played “In The In Between” a few times, and filmed it. This video is a document of the night. No hi-def perfect miming vocals and instruments. We’d have used the live sound if the room didn’t make everything sound like Glenn Branca.
What Sean captured was the energy we share when we have you all singing along with us. It was a fucking blast. At the end of the night, people were making friends and exchanging numbers. It was Beyond Dope to be a catalyst for that.
So here is “In The In Between.” If there’s even one person in a tiny room to play for we’ll be there. For now, we’ll see you in the UK and EUROPE.
