Iceage – “The Lord’s Favorite” Video

Danish punk Iceage released their last album You’re Nothing just last year, and today, they’ve already returned with a new song, a slurry and falling-apart rockabilly number called “The Lord’s Favorite.” The track comes with a new video. More than any other Iceage video, this one gets a lot of mileage out of the fact that the band’s members are extremely handsome young men, and it’s full of undertones of sticky and vaguely transgressive sexuality. There’s no new-album news yet, but the band promises “more new music coming soon,” and they’ve also announced a North American tour. Below, check out the video, which Cali Thornhill DeWitt directed, and check out the band’s tour dates.
