Palehound Release New Song ‘My Evil’

    Palehound have released a new single from their upcoming LP Eye on the Bat, which was led by the song ‘The Clutch’. It’s called ‘My Evil’, and it comes with a lyric video that pays homage to The Sopranos. Check it out below.

    “‘My Evil’ is about the extremely humbling experience of realizing that yes, you are the asshole,” El Kempner remarked in a statement. “I found myself acting in ways I was ashamed of, and realizing how capable I was of hurting somebody when I was trying so hard not to. Sometimes when you try so hard to be a “good person” you’re actually swinging so far and recklessly that you make a full circle back to being a shithead. It can be very hard to forgive yourself, and this song is a portrait of that struggle for me.”

    The Sopranos is a show that’s been constantly on loop in my life for the past few years,” Kempner added of the video. “When I got the idea to make a video based on the intro credits of Tony driving through Jersey, I knew I had to do it with my friend Richard Orofino. He’s possibly even a bigger Sopranos fan than I am and he did an incredible job mapping out a lot of the original locations from the show, including Tony’s house that we see at the end of the video. This whole thing was super DIY, just me and Richard (and his camcorder) having the time of our lives and being embarrassing superfans. It’s not exactly shot for shot of the original but, to brag for a sec, I’m truly amazed at how close we were able to get it.”

    Eye on the Bat is due out July 14 via Polyvinyl.
