American Wrestlers are kicking off their 2017 tour with a new video for “Give Up,” the first single off their sophomore album, Goodbye Terrible Youth, out now on Fat Possum. The video is centered on the band performing in a recording studio with a mysterious Plant Man working the boards in the background. It was filmed at Steve Albini’s Chicago studio, Electrical Audio. The band will be touring throughout January.

Here’s what frontman Gary McClure has to say about it, “I wanted a very simple video, which had one other odd element that remained unexplained. The band performing in the studio felt like the most straightforward and it was a little bit of a throwback. I always wanted to record in Electrical Audio in Chicago. It’s a very beautiful building inside and out and they had all these cool looking instruments ready to pick up and play. Of course, the whole thing could be a witty knife-in-the-back comment on 21st century music. But that’s unlikely.”
