A Giant Dog shares new video
for “Jizzney”
Catch them on tour in Europe!

The combination of pretty melodies and the ugliest of realities is what drives Pile: it feels like the playlist for a rock-bottom party, made by people who are in a bad place, taking the opportunity to celebrate it before rising above it.” —Pitchfork

“A goddamn force to be reckoned with” —Nashville Scene

“A Giant Dog delivers a kind of timeless rock ’n’ roll zeal that’s equal parts blistering underground fuzz and arena-sized shining swagger (so part Oblivians, part T. Rex).” —PopMatters

Austin’s A Giant Dog share a new video for “Jizzney” from their Merge debut Pile via The Line of Best Fit. Fresh from the “Rockers on the Road” tour with labelmates, Titus Andronicus, the band will bring its thrilling live show to Europe for the first time this winter.

The music video was directed by Daniel Ralston who writes: “The song ‘Jizzney’ is about an unhealthy obsession, and the video is about the same thing. A weirdo walks into the band’s world collecting souvenirs that lead him to the edge of a swimming pool with a briefcase handcuffed to his wrist. I think A Giant Dog are the best kind of weirdos. The kind you’d want to hang out with. I wanted to get that into the video. Filming them play a show in their hometown of Austin was a true joy, and they were incredibly cool to work with.”

A Giant Dog Pile is available now on CD and LP in the Merge store or digitally at iTunes,Amazon, Apple Music, Spotify,Google Play, and eMusic.

AGD is raucous ear candy culled from the hook-driven melodies of Slade, the glammy swagger of Marc Bolan, the morbid fantasy of Killer-era Alice Cooper, and the unpredictable wit of Sparks. Sabrina and Andrew’s lyrics, equal parts brutally honest, clever, and debased, have a knack for taking their idiosyncratic depravities and making them feel universal. These songs are by, for, and about the losers, freaks, and outcasts. The lonely. The terminally horny. Boozehounds and party animals. No band better speaks to the hearts of slackers, burnouts, rockers, sluts, and creeps everywhere than A Giant Dog.
