Speedy Ortiz Unveil Video For “American Horror,” Extend Tour

Speedy-Ortiz-American-Horror

Speedy Ortiz has kept busy since the internet at large took notice of them. Since the break of Major Arcana, the band has followed with the Real Hair EP earlier this year and the Adult Swim Singles Series submission “Bigger Party.”

The band has released a Peter Binswager-directed, Pitchfork-premiered video steeped with animation in the imagination. We’re taken on deep dives into the inner workings of band members’ brains, and things get weird pretty quickly.

This release was also accompanied by news of the band’s current tour being extended, with dates with Ex Hex Now stretching from October into November. Check it all out below.
