SPEEDY ORTIZ Premiere Video For “No Below”

SPEEDY ORTIZ PREMIERES NEW VIDEO FOR "NO BELOW" TOURING WITH THE BREEDERS, JOANNA GRUESOME, STEPHEN MALKMUS, MAJOR ARCANA OUT NOW ON CARPARK RECORDS.

Speedy Ortiz has unveiled the new video for “No Below” in anticipation of months of touring behind their debut album Major Arcana which came out July 9th on Carpark Records. The video was directed by Boast Choan and features members of friends’ bands Ovlov, Palehound, and Very Fresh. See below for upcoming tour dates!

Major Arcana marks the evolution of Speedy Ortiz into a wholly collaborative effort. Bassist Darl Ferm (ex-Day Sleeper), drummer Mike Falcone (Dead Wives, Ovlov), guitarist Matt Robidoux (ex-Graph, Banjo Assault), and Sadie on vocals and guitar recorded the album in November 2012 at Justin Pizzoferrato’s (Chelsea Light Moving, Dinosaur Jr.) studio, Sonelab. The huge space in an old factory set the stage for many long sessions allowing the band to experiment and further solidify their sound. It’s easy to hear the influences of Helium, Jawbox, and Chavez, on this album, as well as nods to their contemporaries including Grass Is Green, Pile, and Roomrunner, but their sound remains playful, modern, and decidedly their own.
