Trans Am made a video for “I’ll Never” (watch); tour starts tonight, hits NYC on Friday (updated dates)

by Andrew Sacher

Trans Am

Post rock pioneers Trans Am released their tenth album, Volume X, this week (5/20) via Thrill Jockey and have just given video treatment to one of its singles, “I’ll Never.” The song’s a vocoder-led ballad with repeated refrains of “Come a little bit closer” and “I’ll never get over you” and there’s a kitschy intimacy in the video (based on this video) to match. See for yourself — it premieres in this post and can be watched below.

The band also begin their previously announced tour in DC tonight (5/22) and come to NYC on Friday (5/23) at Knitting Factory with Dan Friel and Chron Turbine. Tickets for that show are still available.

Updated tour dates are listed, with the new video, below…
