Boss Hog‘s “Ground Control” video is off the band’s first LP effort in seventeen years, Brood X, out now via In the Red Records. Directed by Andrew Hooper, the visuals feature Boss Hog’s Cristina Martinez and bandmates, including husband Jon Spencer, in a Cold War caper that probably says more about our current events than those of the past. Filmed in and around Coney Island, “Ground Control” follows the band as they stalk some creepy and faceless figures while transistor toting foreign agents watch and report back to the motherland. What exactly is going on here is up for debate, much like the news of the day, but one thing is for certain, Martinez and Spencer will get to the bottom of this case one way or another!
Boss Hog is currently on tour and will play Lee’s Place in Toronto tonight, as well as the Do Division Street Festival in Chicago this coming June. You’ll find a full list of the band’s upcoming tour dates after the YouTube embed below.
