Heartless Bastards – “Gates of Dawn” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

This summer Austin’s Heartless Bastards are releasing Restless Ones, their fifth album of wide-open rock. The album was produced by John Congleton and showcases frontwoman Erika Wennerstrom’s gritty, bluesy voice more than ever. Today we’re premiering the video for “Gates Of Dawn,” which gives me DIY/home-video vibes and follows a teenager who is taunting, fleeing from and wrestling a devil of sorts. Shots of the band are mixed in, and they kaleidoscope out into a colorful, psychedelic mess at the end. Watch the Frank Weysos-directed clip below.

I’m also posting the album artwork here because it’s incredibly intricate and beautiful. It was created by Cheyenne Randall.

Restless Ones is out 6/9 via Partisan. Pre-order it here.
