Noisey debuts new David Kilgour & the Heavy Eights music video for "Some Things You Don't Get Back"

"Some Things You Don't Get Back", the raucous closer to David Kilgour & the Heavy Eights' End Times Undone, has been given the music video treatment: watch & share via Noisey now. Speaking from California after his west coast tour dates with the band, David Kilgour had this to say about the video:

It's two performances to the track, with the two versions visually transposed over each other, shot by Thomas Bell and edited by Stuart Page who did the "Comin' On" video too...we shot in a bar called Chicks where we recorded most of End Times Undone....the bar is close to Dunedin at a place called Port Chalmers......cheap as chops!
