As far as bad gigs go, the one that goes down in Palma Violets’ new video for “Best of Friends” is awfuly excruciating. In the black and white video for their anthemic trackthe UK act runs around the streets of the city like The Beatles once did in A Hard Day’s Night, only the gaggle of fans running after them seems to be missing. When the band finally get to the gig, it’s as if the audience holds Palma Violets personally responsible for history’s most horrific wars and atrocities. Get a glimpse of what cutting your teeth is like in in the video below:

The band’s debut album, 180, is currently available via Rough Trade. In support, the four guys embark on a European festival tour tomorrow.
