Ratboys’ New Video Celebrates Life Amidst Loss

0

Chicago duo Ratboys–aka vocalist/guitarist Julia Steiner and guitarist Dave Sagan–have shared their new music video for “Elvis is in the Freezer,” off their forthcoming sophomore album GN. Directed by Kenna Hynes, the clip is a montage, revealed backwards, of the moments leading up to the protagonists’ burial of their pet cat.

We want to show the joy that comes from having someone to lean on. And really, we want to celebrate the potential that every new relationship has to make life better and more fulfilling. – Julia Steiner

GN is out June 30 on Topshelf Records. Ratboys will join Pet Symmetry, PWR BTTM, and Mother Evergreen on their run of North American shows this summer, including a record release show at Schubas in Chicago. View a full list of dates below.
