Dinosaur Jr. released a new album, Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not, last year via Jagjaguwar. Now the band has shared a video for “Knocked Around.” A filmmaker who simply goes by O directed the black & white video, which consists of slow motion footage of the band performing live and was shot without the band’s knowledge while on tour. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

O had this to say about the video in a press release: “This song is one of my favorites from Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not. It is everything amazing about Dinosaur Jr.: soft yet hard with J’s awesome sense of vocal melody and a heavy dose of guitar schralping! I shot the entire video live while on the most recent US tour, and in slow-mo and black and white to capture the way I see tour life. This is a very hardworking band - Dinosaur Jr. had no idea I was doing this, so what you see is very honest and all live, shot at many venues across the US with different types of cameras. ‘Knocked Around’ is my take, and what I get from the song about being far away from family. The beginning of the video is my favorite section, with J’s son Rory guitar teching for J onstage. Lou’s sock dance/art is pretty rad, also. Thirty years after the start of this great band, they continue to release amazing albums - one right after the other.”
