The official music video for The New Pornographers’ ‘War on the East Coast’ premiered today on Rolling Stone.

The Thomas Glunt directed video is done in a single take and features fireworks and a small riot.

“”We were going for some mid-Nineties second-tier Britpop attitude,” explains AC Newman. “In the past, I’ve never really wanted to be in the video. But with this, we wanted to have fun and fully be in the video.”
