Young Widows – “The Last Young Widow” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Last month, Louisville post-hardcore trio Young Widows released their fourth album, the excellent Easy Pain, a howling, hammering eight-song/40-minute suite of coal-black noise/hardcore from the renowned Jesus Lizard/Mclusky school. That album’s first single/apex, “Kerosene Girl,” might be the best song of 2014, but everything that surrounds it hits nearly as hard. Today, the band has delivered an appropriately noir-ish Ethan Roberts-directed video for Easy Pain’s slow-building closing number, “The Last Young Widow,” to promote their upcoming tour with White Reaper.
