The Black Lips Go Full-Hillbilly for “Boys in the Wood” Video

photo-6By now, you should know that the Black Lips are coming out with a new record, Underneath the Rainbow, on March 18th. Also, you’ve probably already heard the new single, “Boys in the Wood” – a decent garage rock anthem for proud hillbillies everywhere. Now, the Black Lips have made a music video with the ATL Twins that takes the song’s message to heart…maybe even too much. Basically, the video follows a bunch of backwoods hicks whose hobbies include (but are not limited to) freebasing meth, beating the shit out of people with baseball bats and other Deliverance-style degenerate behavior. It’s worth a watch. Check it out along with some tour dates below.
