Watch King Khan Team Up With Jesus

    Garage-rock jester King Khan returned earlier this year with his band the Shrines, putting out “Bite My Tongue” as a split 7″ with Mikal Cronin. Now the classic-sounding cut gets its own classic clip wherein Khan takes on yet another alter ego. Assuming the mantle of Super KK, Khan pays tribute to the cheesiness of ’60s Batman, taking out bad guys with bizarre super powers, a wine-shooting Jesus, and a pretty great melody. Khan’s also got a host of tour dates this summer with the Shrines, so check those out along with the video below. [Stereogum]
