Against Me! shares video for “Drinking With The Jocks”, extends U.S. tour

on June 19, 2014, 11:40am

I had a friend once who was really into collage; in fact, she gave me one as a gift after we made out this one time. She always liked to listen to music as she worked and commented that the more aggressive the song, the more raw and real the collage was. Of course, she also covered all her food in nacho cheese, so I took her words with a grain of salt.

Still, that theory certainly seems to encapsulate Against Me!’s new video for “Drinking With The Jocks”. Perhaps the most aggressive song on Transgender Dysphoria Blues, it’s given a treatment that’s one part lyric video and one part manic collage. The result is a slew of random, jarring images (nude body parts, skulls, nooses, etc.) made all the more visceral by the angst-ridden soundtrack. It may be uber NSFW, but it also reminds this writer of a very special friend and a very special period in his life. Also, that I shouldn’t watch this video again without my morning cup o’ Joe.

Watch it below:

In further support of Transgender Dysphoria Blues, Against Me! has expanded its upcoming tour schedule. After returning stateside for Forecastle, the band will remain on the road through late October. Along the way, they’ll also share the stage with The Gaslight Anthem and play the Osheaga and FYF festivals . Consult the full docket below.
