White Reaper share animated video for “The World’s Best American Band” — watch

on May 23, 2017, 3:25pm

White Reaper’s The World’s Best American Band scorched the Earth upon its arrival in early April. Now, the band has released a video to accompany the title track’s buoyant blend of arena-sized riffs and jubilant handclaps.

The animated clip features artwork from Simon Young, who here presents a fantastical spin on the likes of Heavy Metal Parking Lot and Detroit Rock City. An intoxicated crowd’s pre-show antics are juxtaposed with the band leaving behind the doldrums of life to go play a gig. Somewhere along the way, one fan gets involved with a magical hotdog that turns the concert it one freaky experience. The band itself comes to life when they take the stage near the video’s end in a sequence directed by Aaron Berger. Watch the video above.

The band has also announced a series of North American dates for this summer, which will find them onstage with the likes of Spoon and Diarrhea Planet.
