Wavves shows are chaotic, ruthless, beer-spilling endeavors where the mosh is so intense you’ll feel your feet barely touching the ground, squished shoulder-to-shoulder by pre-pubescent teens. The accompanying video to their track “My Head Hurts” is a tour video of their recent fall live dates, and it includes footage of frontman Nathan Williams crowdsurfing, fleeting moments of the band’s backstage antics, and lots of Pacman. The single is pulled from the band’s most recent album V, following single releases of “Way Too Much,” “Flamezesz,” and “Heavy Metal Detox.” The video ends with Williams launching himself off of a balcony and somersaulting into the loving arms of adoring fans below, who manage to catch him and prevent a medical disaster. It’s like a trust exercise for charismatic frontmen. Watch it below.
