Lower Dens release video for “To Die in L.A.” from ‘Escape From Evil’

Jana Hunter of Lower Dens @ The Independent last June

Indie rockers Lower Dens announced their new record, Escape from Evil, last month, along with with first single, “To Die in L.A.,” and now they’ve released a video for that song.

Of the video, singer/guitarist Jana Hunter says:

The song takes its name from the film, ‘To Live and Die in L.A.’ and both the song and the film are about something wild, careless, exciting and tragic. The video needed to reflect that. Cody was the obvious choice. The first time I saw him in person, he was on top of a crowd in Monterrey, pelvic-thrusting and singing, as SSION. I fell in love immediately. Who better to translate this ode to reckless firebrands.

Escape From Evil comes out March 31st via Ribbon Music, and the band start at tour of mostly East Coast dates on March 12. Check out the video for “To Die in L.A.” and Lower Dens tour dates below.
