The Mountain Goats premiered the new video for “Cry for Judas” at Pitchfork TV.
Directed by Carlo Mirabella-Davis and shot last month in upstate New York, the “Cry for Judas” video is described by Pitchfork as an “emotional rollercoaster.” Mirabella-Davis wrote and directed the short film Knife Point, and co-directed and produced the feature documentary The Swell Season.
The band kicked off the first leg of their U.S. tour last night in Richmond, VA and have already sold out all four of their New York shows next week.
Darnielle of the Mountain Goats recently filmed performances of “Harlem Roulette” off Transcendental Youth along the New York City waterfront for Pitchfork.tv and WNYC’s Souncheck where he performed: “In Memory of Satan”, “White Cedar”, “Counterfeit Florida Plates” off the new album, along with “Thank You Mario, But Our Princess Is In Another Castle”. Darnielle also performed four songs for Gothamist House Presents including “Harlem Roulette”, “Cry for Judas”, “No Children” and “Raja Vocative”.
Transcendental Youth is available now on CD, LP, and digital in the Merge store.
