In support of their sophomore album Dye It Blonde (due January 18th), fun-loving glam-rockers Smith Westerns premiered today the official video for “Weekend,” the first single off their upcoming LP. Directed by Focus Creeps and shot in a glaze of cool blues, purples, and reds, “Weekend” juxtaposes suburban backdrops of malls and fast food joints with a dreary forest complete with…pickaxes? Watch the video below and see for yourself.
