Video for lead-off track from new EP, Saturday, released today

Noisy Baltimore four-piece Dope Body have today released a new two-track 7", Saturday, through Drag City, and we've got an exclusive first look at the video for lead track 'Leather Head' above.

Sheena Callage directs the clip, which, with its occasional, warped deviations from head-on performance footage and mug shots does a good job of providing the visual equivalent to the greasy, seething sounds the band pull out of their instruments for the cut.
