Today Dinosaur Jr. shares a new video for “Knocked Around.” The track comes from the trio’s latest album, Give A Glimpse Of What Yer Not, released last year through Jagjaguwar.

The new video was filmed by longtime friend, O. Shot in black and white and in hazy, slow motion takes, the visual accompaniment for “Knocked Around” was filmed during live sets on the band’s most recent US tour, without Dino’s knowledge, capturing the essence of the longtime band’s tour dynamics. You can read O’s statement on the video below:

“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.”
