Sledding With Tigers Release “Not So Body Posi After All” Music Video

Sledding-With-Tigers-2014

San Diego folk punk outfit Sledding With Tigers have released the official music video for their song “Not So Body Posi After All.” The track, which is taken from the group’s debut album, was originally released in the spring.

Do you remember the Jimmy Eat World video for “The Middle“? While the band played on a hot summer night they found themselves in the midst of a house party filled with people in their underwear who ‘just so happen’ to look like models. It’s considered a classic clip today, but to be honest it does not paint a very accurate portrait of the punk scene. Music fans come in all shapes and sizes, which is kind of the point Sledding With Tigers hope to make with the clip for “Not So Body Posi After All.” You can view the visuals below:

Writing to fans about the video and the concept behind it, Sledding With Tigers frontman Dan Faughdner commented:

Dear Friends,

Today, we are releasing the official music video for our song “Not So Body Posi After All” into the world. I am so excited to share it with you and I hope you share it too. This music video is about learning to be comfortable in your own skin, and learning to love your body, even if it sometimes feels like goofy mush.

Thank you to all of my friends who bared their souls (AND THEIR BODS), for this project. They are brave and beautiful people and I wouldn’t want to live in a world without them. Thank you to the Goddess House collective for providing a safe and beautiful venue to film at and BIG THANK YOU’S to Miranda Reilly, Daniel Torres and Cameron Hughes who helped with the filming of this video. They are amazing people, who also volunteer at an amazing space called Bridgetown DIY.

I hope you guys like the video. Please be respectful in your comments. Any body shaming or sexualizing comments would be antithetical to the message of the song/video.

Sledding With Tigers’ debut album, A Necessary Bummer, is available now via Antique Records.
