Debt Begins at 30 out worldwide May 31st on Sub Pop

On “Twin Cities,” The Gotobeds’ latest single from their upcoming album, Debt Begins at 30, the band taps Tracy Wilson, formerly of Dahlia Seed and currently of Positive No, to share the singing, and the result is a fiery, exuberant pop song.

When asked about the Shawn Brackbill-directed video, The Gotobeds frontman Eli Kasan said: “If you’ve ever toured or spent long stretches of time with the same folks you know nerves can fray. We found a way to release that tension by macing each other for the video. Ever seen the Purge? Me neither, but it’s the same idea. “Twin Cities” is about two people (the two narrators) having different experiences in the same city, and the video reflects that. Shot entirely on VHS as we’re all old enough to own VCRs, not from Urban Outfitters – take that 90’s nostalgia blowhards!”

You can watch the band burn through the song via CLASH MUSIC, who say of the video, “‘Twin Cities’ is an absolute riot, with the thrashing, colliding guitars bolstered by vocals from Tracy Wilson.”

The Gotobeds will play an album release show in their hometown of Pittsburgh, PA on May 25th at Babyland with midwest & eastern shows in June & July.
