London-based quartet USA Nails have shared the video for another track from their recent album, ‘No Pleasure’ – watch ‘I Am In A Van’ below, first on Upset. The band – which features ex-members of Oceansize, Future of the Left, Kong, Hawk Eyes and Silent Front – shot the clip while on the road in Europe.
“’I Am In A Van’ is a song about spending lots of time in a van, sleeping on peoples’ floors and urinating in their ovation round-back guitars, despite being old enough to know better,” explains guitarist Gareth. “This video was put together by me, and is a combination of footage that was shot on our last European tour, and live clips that date back to the beginning of our time as a band.
“We will be hulking our swelling bellies and thinning scalps around in a van a fair bit over the next few months, playing some great shows with some great bands. Maybe you would like to come and see us sweat and pant and take ever lengthening water breaks, and wonder why we don’t just stop and let some slimmer, better looking, more talented people have a crack instead.”
Find the band’s upcoming live dates after the jump. They include a spot at Leicester’s Handmade Festival this weekend, find out more at handmadefestival.co.uk.
