Denver-based band the Yawpers are back with a new album (American Man) and a brand new music video for their single "Doing It Right."
Premiering on Nerdist.com, the video is as menacing as the band. With a mustachioed main character that can kill wrong doers with a stare, this video is all blood. The song starts with the lyrics "you can’t love her, she don’t stay, a woman like that, there’s a price to pay," and from there it's a self-inflicted stab wound, a cut off penis, and a windshield splattered in blood. So, you know, NSFW.
Maybe don't ever cross the Yawpers. But enjoying this twisted video (and the album when it comes out on October 30)? That's probably OK.
A couple of more songs from the new album can be found at bandcamp, and the Yawpers will be back in Denver on 11/21 at the Hi-Dive.
