The Hold Steady recently released Teeth Dreams, their sixth studio record, and now they've given the album's first single the video treatment.

Filmed at their recent 10th anniversary concert at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg, the video is primarily performance footage, full of Craig Finn's manic energy and the band's engaging live presence. The packed house at the venue sings the lyrics back at the band as the video hops through a variety of camera angles, effects, and filters. Check out the Brooks Jones-directed clip above.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, guitarist Tad Kubler had this to say about the track:

The song has all the critical elements that are the foundation for every great Hold Steady song. There’s the pulsating drive of the rhythm section and the interplay between [guitarist] Steve Selvidge and I, with Finn spitting and snarling about good people making bad choices, stumbling through darkness in search of something bigger and brighter.
