Spiritual Cramp have dropped the final single from their forthcoming self-titled album along with a shoot-em-up-inspired music video for “Better Off This Way.” Directed by Sean Stout, the video features the band members as Guy Ritchie-esque characters as they chase one another through the warehouses and canyons of LA, trying to take possession of a mysterious suitcase. The video also features friend of the band Ian Shelton of Militarie Gun. The song follows “Herberts On Holiday” as well as “Talkin’ On The Internet.”

Out November 3rd via Blue Gramp Music Spiritual Cramp was produced by Michael Bingham and Michael Fenton of the band and includes additional production from Carlos de la Garza (Paramore, M83, The Linda Linda’s, Cherry Glazerr, etc.), who also mixed the album. The band brings fast downstrokes and upstrokes with hip-hop production and reggae inspirations to a Taking Heads meets Big Audio Dynamite meets Clash-styled punk, finding a balance between Molotov protest songs and genuine personal struggle. Both are a product of Bingham and Fenton coming up in San Francisco’s Bay Area. Praised for being a band in their own lane, their well-documented live shows and a handful of EPs have garnered support from the likes of Iggy Pop, V*gra Boys, Turnstile, GEL, Deafheaven, Turnover, Militarie Gun and more.
