Watch: Against Me! offers some “Rapid Decompression”

on April 06, 2010, 1:40pm

It’s always nice to get the back-story of an album. Now that we better understand Against Me! and their mindset going into White Crosses, it’s time we got more than just one single. We feel you are, and are more than happy to offer up (via Stereogum) the first video from the album, the down and dirty “Rapid Decompression”.

If you watch the video and happen to get flashbacks from some dirty, early ’80s Minor Threat underground performance tape, we think that’s the general mission statement. Dressed in their trademark all black, and playing to a sea of energetic, angry youths, the video is right in the band’s wheel well. Quite predictably, things break down into a hectic, mosh-tastic mess in the rapid fire clip. If this is more of a taste to come with the band’s follow up to 2007’s New Wave and their first with new drummer Greg Rebel — formerly of Hot Water Music — then consider us disciples.

White Crosses is in stores on June 8th via Sire Records.
