The band's 'Lightning Bolt' track gets a furious, Danny Clinch-directed music video.
Pearl Jam matches the thrashy punch of new single "Mind Your Manners" today (August 23) with an equally furious music video directed by famed rock photographer Danny Clinch. The clip features the band rocking out in front of a screen filled with partially animated scenes of violence and mass devastation (hurricane footage, bombs, gunfire, oil spills) as frontman Eddie Vedder bites into lines like, "tried my patience / my patience tried."
The "Mind Your Manners" video, posted on the group's YouTube channel, arrives ahead of Pearl Jam's upcoming 10th studio album, "Lightning Bolt," which is due October 15 in the U.S, and its accompanying North American tour, which begins on October 11 in Pittsburgh.
"Manners" director Clinch, who has often photographed Pearl Jam over the years, previously directed the Seattle band's 2007 concert documentary film, "Immagine In Cornice."
