Ex Hex Share “Don’t Wanna Lose” music video

Ex Hex Share "Don't Wanna Lose" music video, the single come off their latest album 'Rips'

After wrapping up southeast US tour dates with King Tuff, Ex Hex are ready for their first live assault on Europe. The band are touring behind their latest release Rips, now out on Merge records.

To celebrate the start of the tour, Ex Hex premiered a new video for Rips opener “Don’t Wanna Lose” yesterday. Directed by Lara Jean Gallagher, the clip is a tongue-in-cheek send-up of the cult-classic 80s movie Ladies & Gentlemen: The Fabulous Stains – a film about three teenage girls who start a punk band.

Watch “Don’t Wanna Lose” below.

Kicking off with an in-store at London’s Rough Trade East on February 9 before a sold out intimate show at Oslo on the 10th, Ex Hex will make their way across the UK and Europe throughout February and into March. Returning stateside, the trio has announced shows in the northeast and two in their hometown of Washington, DC.
