Dum Dum Girls just released the video for "Are You Okay?," the second single from their new album, Too True. This is a little more than just a video though, as it's an 11-minute short film which was written by Bret Easton Ellis (Less Than Zero, American Psycho). Directed by Brewer (who made flashy vids for Purity Ring and Passion Pit), the short features Dee Dee as a woman who has a freakout during a therapy session that doesn't stop when her hour's up. There's some definite Brian De Palma vibes being given off here, and you can watch it below.

Meanwhile, Dum Dum Girls' tour with Blouse starts on the West Coast this weekend and will then invade Austin for SXSW where they are playing 10+ shows. After, they'll head east where they've got two sold-out NYC shows.

All SXSW shows and tour dates are listed, plus the "Are You Okay" video, below...

That was frightening, AND GOOD. I liked that the killer version of her was also the blonde version.

Sometimes you really have to accept the fact that it is already your routine.
