Published Nov 08, 2016Some protests are subtler than others, but that doesn't mean the Drive-By Truckers' latest album American Band is any less impactful. The LP was a searing condemnation of the state of America, and now "Surrender Under Protest" from the record has been given the music video treatment.
The new clip was directed by Lance Bangs and is described as "a gritty portrait of today's America within the Black Lives Matter movement, done in the style of the Clash's 'London Calling.'"
Performance footage of the band doing the Mike Cooley-led track gets cut with scenes of police, anti-police brutality demonstrations, and regular folks going about everyday life.
