Watch Giants Chair's New Music Video For "Kids Running"
Giants Chair's first new album in over 23 years Prefabylon is out everywhere on December 6th and we're proud to show off the band's new music video for the song "Kids Running." The video is a literal deep dive into their video archives and includes footage of their first west coast tour with Boys Life in 1995. Pre-order the album on limited edition vinyl / digital now!
Drummer Paul Ackerman says: "I think Scott's story in “Kids Running" is one of a young Midwestern kid yearning for escape, experience, and maybe a bit of adventure. It's a road trip story - a 'head west' story. So when we saw the footage our old friend Jeremy shot from our tour out west with Boys Life in '95, it seemed like the perfect way to visualize that story. That was our first real tour, so far from home, and the first time seeing the mountains and the Pacific Ocean for some of us. There were a lot of firsts, we had a shit-ton of fun - shaved head, tattooed hands and all - and we have lifelong friendships to go along with those memories. So yeah, it's a pretty nostalgic piece, but just maybe some other Midwestern kids will see it and be inspired to head west as well."
