Bed & Bugs, the most recent album from Obits, was released in the fall of 2013 on Sub Pop Records.The band has toured these United States and Europe and released a couple of music videos along the way. There’s one for the song “Spun Out” and also one for the song “Operation Bikini” (in which, as one Youtube commenter astutely observed, there are no bikinis). And now, there is a new animated video for the song “I’m Closing In” which was directed by Paul Clark.
This May, Obits will be playing two shows here in the U.S. before heading to Brazil for both the Sub Pop Festival in Sao Paulo and the Bananada Festival in Goiania, Brazil. Labelmates Mudhoney and METZ will be playing both of those Brazilian festivals along with Obits.
Upcoming live performances by Obits:
May 10 – Brooklyn, NY at The Wick (with The Men and Nude Beach)
May 13 – Atlanta, GA at The Earl
May 15 – Sao Paulo, Brazil at the Sub Pop Festival (at Audio) (with Mudhoney and METZ)
May 16 – Goiania, Brazil at the Bananada Festival (with Mudhoney and METZ)
