Watch Desaparecidos’ New Music Video for ‘City on the Hill’
When you hear the name Conor Oberst, you may not immediately think of punk rock. That will soon change, though, as Oberst has resurrected his punk rock outfit, Desaparecidos, and will be releasing the band's first album in 13 years on June 23 via Epitaph. After giving us a taste of lead single "City on the Hill," Oberst and company have now unveiled the track's official music video, and it's about as punk rock as it gets. Check it out above.
The video, which was directed by Rob Stoucy, is a collection of old VHS-quality clips of movies, television, ads and news footage, along with a green Mohawk-sporting kid and some arrest footage.
The punk rockers recently ripped apart the first installment of Coachella with a veracious performance and are scheduled to do it all over again this weekend. In addition, this week they're set to perform at the Shrine Expo Hall in L.A. and San Francisco's Regency Ballroom; you can find their full tour itinerary here.
