New Hammer No More the Fingers video - "Fall Down Play Dead"

During a day off in Washington, DC in March, Hammer No More the Fingers took the opportunity to shoot a music video for the song "Fall Down Play Dead" from their new album Looking For Bruce. The video was directed by Patrick Taylor of D Dot Films. Here's what guitarist Joe Hall posted about it.
Pat chose to run with the theme of our album title 'Looking For Bruce' and came up a concept that revolves around Bruce. Bruce has stolen our CR-V with all of our gear and we go out looking for him, putting up posters and playing our song in a DC park (?!) The posters we put up in the video have scenes from Dan Nitro Clark's film "Looking for Bruce," implying that Bruce is actually Nitro.
The plot isn't really obvious throughout the video, but it is quite sharp none-the-less. Check it out below.

The band have numerous local shows coming up in Pittsboro, Chapel Hill, Durham and Raleigh, Check out all of their upcoming dates below the video.
