Canadian band the Hidden Cameras have just announced the impending release of Age, their sixth album but their first since 2009. Lead single “Gay Goth Scene” has been a staple of the band’s live shows for more than a decade, but this version, which has backing vocals from singer-songwriter Mary Margaret O’Hara, is the first that they’ve released. The song deals with teenage bullying, and its video, from director Kai Stänicke, is a tough and intense and artfully rendered narrative about same. It will make you feel bad, but you should watch it anyway below.
Age is out 1/21 on Evil Evil/Motor Music.
