Pet Shop Boys announce Super Tour dates, share video for “Twenty-something” — watch

on May 10, 2016, 4:00pm

The American criminal justice system is often perceived as a unbreakable cycle of punishment without redemption. In their new video for “Twenty-something”, Pet Shop Boys highlight this revolving door policy in stirring reality.

Directed by Gavin Filipiak and set in the Sherman Heights area of San Diego, the clip follows a young gang member who is finally freed after paying his debt to society. But once back on the outside with crippling debt, two children, and a pregnant girlfriend, society doesn’t seem to give a damn if he’s done his time. It’s a tale sadly as old as time, and you can check it out above.

The video comes as Pet Shop Boys announce a new tour behind their latest album, Super. The North American leg runs from late October to mid-November, sandwiched by a four night stand at London’s Royal Opera House and a European trek. Find their full itinerary below.
