The Middle East

As recently mentioned, The Middle East are very unfortunately ending their run as a band (for now anyway). They had just recently released the full length I Want That You Are Always Happy. And though they may not exist as a band at the moment, their music still lives on and we've got a premiere of a new video for "Jesus Came to My Birthday Party" off that album, below. The song's got a great folk rock vibe and its video renders vague contrasts of youth and old age in conjunction with the song's surreal lyrics.

Check out the video below, and best wishes to all members of the band (may they change their mind and come tour the states again soon).
