Director Eric Bachmann on “Jaded Lover, Shady Drifter”:

I shot this video while driving through Western Canada during my last tour, and edited it late at night in cheap hotels, campgrounds, and shady Walmart parking lots. Always in the back of a goddamn van. Get in the goddamn van, Rock n Roll Man! Get in the goddamn van!”
