Howler - Back Of Your Neck VIDEO

Rolling Stone premiered the new Howler video 'Back Of Your Neck' yesterday. Howler are a 5-piece band out of Minneapolis that have been cashing in on some big time sounds. They have their full-length debut album America Give Up set for release on Rough Trade Records on January 17th, 2012. 'Back Of Your Neck' is the lead single to the debut album and the video was directed by friend of the band, Robert Semmer. Howler frontman, Jordan Gatesmith reminds me of a young Julian Casablancas in sound and looks. Their music also has that early Strokes Is This It feel to it, bringing back that raw, and edgy sound that we have missed. Gatesmith has this to say about working with his buddy Robert on the video...
"He got us drunk, held us in his arms and told us it would be alright," Gatesmith says. "And it was. . . . It was."
