Guided By Voices Premiere “Bad Love Is Easy To Do” Video; On Tour Now

Guided By Voices Release New Video

Bad Love Is Easy To Do”, the first single from Guided By Voices’ new album, Cool Planet, has a new video, starring comedians Rob Corddry, Brian Huskey, Rich Fulcher, and musician Katy Goodman. The video can be watched here.

The black-and-white Simon & Garfunkel parody video features Rob Corddry as GBV-ringleader Robert Pollard and Brian Huskey as guitarist Tobin Sprout, and is directed by Mike Postalakis, who also directed the Rob Corddry-starring video for “Planet Score” from Guided by Voices’ other 2014 release, Motivational Jumpsuit. Guided By Voices is currently out on the road for a full US Summer tour. Recorded during the sub-freezing Polar Vortex of 2014, the next Guided by Voices record is titled Cool Planet.

Robert Pollard has talked in recent months about having refined his approach to songwriting and the tunes he’s written for Cool Planet stack up against the best he’s ever done, including the hard hitting title track, which is just begging to be played live. Guitarist Tobin Sprout steps up with (among others) a Bowie-esque number (“Psychotic Crush”) and a Beatle-esque number (“All American Boy”) – it should be noted that Tobin recorded his songs for the most part at his home studio in Leland, Michigan, but they fit like Legos in the plastic palace of Cool Planet.

The tracklisting for Cool Planet, along with the scheduled dates for upcoming live shows, can be found below.
