Saskatoon melodic punk rockers Me The Guts have been kicking holes in the rotten floorboards of the internet since the release of their third album Spilt Guts Over Rough Cuts last April. The demolition continued today when the band released the first video from the new album, for the song "Get Out Of My Head, There's Barely Enough Room in There for Me". Like some dystopian episode of Love It or List It, the video features band members Derek Kuchirka and Josh Collins roaming unchecked through the ruin of a forgotten small prairie town, ducking in and out of garbage-strewn condemned houses and skipping like Chernobylites down overgrown dirt roads.
When asked, Kuchirka disclosed that "we really had no idea what we were going to do for the video. I mentioned to my brother (director Cody Kuchirka) that it would be cool to go to this old abandoned town and just film in the different buildings. Cody came up with all the different shots and we just went with it." When pressed to disclose the actual location of the village-of-the-damned video set, Kuchirka gestured vaguely to the south and muttered "...somewhere near Outlook".
Spilt Guts Over Rough Cuts is available on all major streaming services.
