Need something new to watch during your mid-week slump? Lightning Dust premiered their stylized new video for “Loaded Gun” on Vevo last night! The visual, directed by Zachary Rothman, brings you into a bleak, pitch black environment only lit by fluorescent light bulbs mixed with some freaky imagery. The video matches the dark, ominous vibe of “Loaded Gun”, off Lightning Dust’s newest album, Fantasy. Watch the video above and then catch the band at Pickathon in early August and in a city near you by checking the dates below.

WATCH: The Cave Singers Live at Pickathon Music Festival


Two summers ago, The Cave Singers performed a brand new song for KEXP backstage at Pickathon. So new, it didn’t even have a name. A few weeks ago, they made their return to the festival and played that no-name song, now called “Haller Lake,” as well as “Swim Club,” both found on 2011′s No Witch. They seem right at home in the Bunny Glade. Watch above.
