EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Missing Monuments’ New Video, “(I’m Gonna) Love You Back To Life”


It’s been nearly a year since the public last had opportunity to bob its collective head to new music from New Orleans-based garage punk godfather King Louie Bankston, but he and his Missing Monuments are ready to come out swinging in the second half of 2012. Today the power pop quartet unleashes new single “(I’m Gonna) Love You Back To Life” as they brace themselves for a non-stop two-week tour of the Western United States.

Directed by Art Boonparn – who has previously helmed the camera for the likes of Cold Cave, Xray Eyeballs and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart – and featuring technical work from Antigravity Magazine head Dan Fox and veteran cameraman Gary LoVerde, the video sets nineties-inspired, candid found-footage against hilarious product placements of several local food items, extolling the ways they can be used to soak a Gibson Flying-V and destroy a hot tub pump system. The deceptively sweet-spirited “(I’m Gonna) Love You Back To Life” is one part of an upcoming 7″ to be released through Chicago’s Hozac Records in July.
