Kurt Vile Shares New Song & Video “Loading Zones”

Kurt-Vile-1-Credit-Henry-Diltz

Directed by Drew Saracco, the video is a paean to his City of Brotherly Love, and farcical tribute to the song’s lyrics, themselves an account of Vile’s peculiar parking strategy. “I PARK FOR FREE!” he proclaims, as he goes about his day moving his car from one loading zone to another, narrowly avoiding parking tickets and irate meter maids played by Kevin Corrigan (Superbad, The Departed, Goodfellas) and Matt Korvette (Pissed Jeans).

Vile will hit the road this fall on an extensive global tour, with support from The Violators (Rob Laakso, Kyle Spence, and Jesse Trbovich). Tickets are on-sale now for the full world tour, which commences in Hamburg, Germany on October 12 th . The North American leg, where fans can expect a further taste of new music in addition to the band’s iconic catalogue, kicks off on November 24 th in Boston. The band has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 per ticket sold will go to support the ACLU’s work defending and protecting our individual rights and liberties.
