Growing release final video vignettes in advance of PUMPS



Growing’s final two self-directed video vignettes previewing their new album PUMPS! have been unleashed today. Out next Tuesday, April 6th on VICE Records, the videos for “Highlight” and “Challenger” [premiered on The Music Slut] conclude the series of six released over the last two months.

Joe DeNardo’s “Challenger” gives a nostalgic, seizure-worthy portrait of the band’s youth, recalling “our older brother buying us beers, we’d all kick it at Ocropolis with Barry [London] and jam it out.” Kevin Doria’s “Highlight” engages a more cryptic (and borderline NSFW) interpretation, leaving us with “Where’s Waldo? Father must be proud.”

Watch all of the six video vignettes here and be sure to catch the band’s live sonic takeover coming to a city near you. Their upcoming full-length video for “Mind Eraser” will be included exclusively with the album pre-order at, along with all six video vignettes released to date. Tour dates below.
