Watch Awesome Wild Flag Album Trailer

 

Not your standard
promotional vehicle. Watch out for those arrows, kids.

As we noted awhile back, the debut self-titled album from Wild
Flag – the 4-piece Portland,
OR- and Washington, DC-based rock
group including Carrie Brownstein, Mary Timony, Rebecca Cole and Janet Weiss –
is due September 13 on Merge Records. Featuring members of Sleater-Kinney,
Quasi, Helium, the Minders and Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks to name just a
few, Wild Flag premiered with a tour of small west coast rock clubs in the fall
of 2010 and has been performing to hefty acclaim since. (Blurt caught the band in
Austin at SXSW and
also in D.C. this spring and can testify to the band’s musical prowess.)

 

The latest round of tour dates is listed below. Meanwhile,
you can take a look at the forthcoming album’s new video trailer. It was
directed by Andrew Ellmaker and Lara Gallagher and is pretty whacked out, to
say the least.
