This spring, the Whigs released their latest album, Modern Creation, and with lauded producer Jim Scott (Wilco, Tom Petty) at the helm, it's safe to argue this collection is some of their best work yet. Today, we're thrilled to premiere the video for the album's title track. Watch the clip above.
"We went into the making of the 'Modern Creation' video with a vaguely futuristic concept in mind," vocalist/guitarist Parker Gispert explains. "The song is about knowledge and time being illusory, modern constructs. The bubble in the video represents an indifferent void."
Modern Creation is out now on New West Records and can be purchased through Amazon and iTunes. The Whigs are fresh off a tour with Social Distortion and already back on the road for a headlining North American tour. Check out a full list of dates below.
