The Mountain Goats kick off tour dates with Bright Eyes today with the release of an animated music video for "Estate Sale Sign," their “blistering anthem” (NPR) from new album 'All Eternals Deck' (Merge).
Directed by Brooklyn-based animation team Awesome and Modest, the video was made using mixed media and handmade techniques to craft the eerie landscapes and anthropomorphic creatures at war over a snow globe.
In December, The Mountain Goats return to the U.K. joining the line-up at All Tomorrow’s Parties curated by Jeff Magnum. Before then, The Mountain Goats play Lollapalooza in August and John Darnielle will perform a solo show at the Maximum Ames Festival in September. See full schedule below.
