« Liars played Austin Psych Fest (pics); NYC shows this week ++ win tix to see them at The Wick! | Unsound presented Porter Ricks & more @ The Wick (pics) --- Marnie Stern, Obits, The Men & more play there this weekend »

Donovan Wolfington put out their Scary Stories You Tell in the Dark EP earlier this year -- their first release for Topshelf -- and it's the kind of raw, hooky rock made for college radio and college house shows. So it makes sense that for the video for its excellent single, "Keep Ripper," they've basically filmed the band throwing a house party filled with twentysomethings, cheap beer, balloons, silly string, shirtless dudes, kissing and more. That video (filmed by Ally Newbold, edited by Klein Bros. Audiovisual) premieres in this post and can be watched below.
The band toured not long ago, and they'll head out for another run of dates soon. A handful of those are with Ovlov, including the NYC show happening on June 30 at Shea Stadium.
All dates are listed, with the new video and a stream of their EP, below...
