Watch the world premiere video for Semi Precious Weapons' single "Semi Precious Weapons" off their Geffen debut You Love You out this spring. Shot at NYC's Webster Hall last month, the video is a glimpse into the filthy and glamorous world of a band set to distort everything you think you know about rock 'n roll. Ditch the dustpan and save the bleach for your hair, because you can't fight the dirt at this party!
Frontman Justin Tranter says of the video:
“We really really fucking really wanted to make a REAL NYC party video. Every band, pop star, guitar player, and girl group has made a quote unquote Party Video. But we wanted ours to be real. So we asked DJ Jess if we could take over his "Trash" party downstairs at Webster Hall since we had played that party so many times before. And then we had our actual bff's and true fans fill the place. Lady Starlight, Darian Darling, Breedlove, Knehans, The Jocelyn, Mz Eddy, Stormy Leather and obviously us, Semi Precious Weapons all hung out, changed outfits, and lived life to create the best party video of all time. Champagne was spit, sex was had, filthy glaMOUR was created and The Precious Empire reigned supreme to create our dream rockNRoll party video.”
The single is available on iTunes now as part of a 3 song EP preview of You Love You, along with "Magnetic Baby" and "Put a Diamond in It." SPW heads overseas this month to continue greasing up crowds worldwide as the opening act on Lady Gaga's Monster Ball tour, a slot that earned SPW critical acclaim for their outrageous and energetic performances throughout its US leg.
Semi Precious Weapons is Justin Tranter (vocals), Dan Crean (drums), Cole Whittle (bass), and Stevy Pyne (guitar).
