See the Breeders Rock Out as Puppets in ‘Nervous Mary’ Video

Band will tour North America extensively this fall

The Breeders put out a crafty video for their song “Nervous Mary,” using puppets in place of frontwomen Kim and Kelley Deal. A fan of the group’s from Finland, Milla Risku, made the puppets, and the band shot the clip on a tour stop while in Nijmegan, Holland. People walk by, but no cars seem to pass them as “Kelley” headbangs furiously and Kim waves her hands around.

The song comes off their recent album All Nerve, which was the group’s first in a decade and first with its Last Splash lineup in a quarter century. When Rolling Stone asked the band earlier this year what they thought of nostalgia around the time they put out Last Splash, the members had differing opinions.

“For me, that was the last great era of rock music before things changed,” bassist Josephine Wiggs said. “I think there was a real shift. I really think that the early Nineties was a bit of a watershed moment.” Kim was more tentative: “I think it’s already been played out a little bit,” she says. “I’d love to get popular again if that’s what’s happening. Are we popular again?”

The band will be supporting the record with a North American tour this fall. After a handful of summer dates (below), they’ll be on the road with an intense itinerary from the end of September through October before heading to Europe.
