“The Descent” (Video)

    A few weeks ago, Bob Mould released “The Descent,” the first single off his upcoming Merge debut Silver Age (out September 4). The track came off like a warning shot, letting the musical world know that he’s back to his snarling, quasi-punk roots.

    Now comes a timely video for “The Descent” wherein Mould–knattily-dressed as a corporate drone–is fired from his job and returns to nature. Fitting with the song’s fist-pumping atmosphere, Mould shows this as a good thing. Bonus points for ripping off the sleeves of his Oxford shirt, Lord of the Flies style. Watch it below.
