Howler 'Back of Your Neck'

'Back of Your Neck'

Minneapolis-based five-piece Howler is set to release their full-length debut, America Give Up, on Rough Trade on January 17th, following the success of their 2011 EP This One's Different. The grainy video for lead single "Back of Your Neck" was directed by Robert Semmer, who is a friend of the band. Frontman Jordan Gatesmith says that working with Robert made the shoot easier. "He got us drunk, held us in his arms and told us it would be alright," Gatesmith says. "And it was. . . . It was."
