The Hidden Cameras – “Gay Goth Scene” Video

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.
