The Thermals - "Born To Kill" Video

Heroic Portland punk power trio the Thermals will release their new album Desperate Ground next month, and they’ve just given us the self-directed video for the anthemic first single “Born To Kill.” The video stars frontman Hutch Harris as a wild-eyed lunatic and the other two Thermals as mysterious government types who brutally suppress and interrogate him. The band clearly used a lot of fake blood in the making of this one.
