watch Ty Segall’s explosive “Break a Guitar” video ft. Fred Armisen, Jack Black & Henry Rollins


When you make a video for a song called “Break a Guitar,” there is a certain audience expectation for guitars to get broken. Thankfully, director Matt Yoka delivers with the video for Ty Segall‘s song of that name (from this year’s self-titled LP). Specifically, guitars get blown up, in slow motion, and are then morphed, along with some other stuff, into a psychedelic whirpool. There are cameos from Fred Armisen, Jack Black and Henry Rollins, plus a coda that is not for the squeamish. A very cool video, and you can watch it below.

Ty Segall and his Freedom Band are going on a North American tour in the Spring, where they’ll play three nights at Brooklyn’s Warsaw in May.  Updated dates are listed below.
