Spin premieres the newest video from indie rockers of Montreal for their song "Famine Affair" off their recently released album False Priest.
Frontman Kevin Barnes states, "It's the story of a man living in a feminine empire. As a male, he is considered lower class. He is expected to abstain from any social interaction with members of the ruling class, and provide sperm for breeding rituals. Each household is provided by the State with one male, the housemale is not permitted to leave the grounds. The housemale must live in the estate he is assigned to until death or sexual impotence."
The video was directed by Jason Miller (who also directed the band's video for "Coquet Coquette") and Nina Barnes (a former band member and Kevin's wife) who co-directed.The band has also set up a remix contest for "Famine Affair," and will accept submissions through November 19.
