Palehound have released ‘My Evil’, the second single to be taken from their upcoming album ‘Eye On The Bat’, which is due out 14th July on Polyvinyl Record Co. ‘My Evil’ follows on from lead single ‘The Clutch’, released in April.

The latest track continues El Kempner’s unflinchingly honest approach to writing: “”My Evil” is about the extremely humbling experience of realizing that yes, you are the asshole. I found myself acting in ways I was ashamed of, and realizing how capable I was of hurting somebody when I was trying so hard not to. Sometimes when you try so hard to be a “good person” you’re actually swinging so far and recklessly that you make a full circle back to being a shithead. It can be very hard to forgive yourself, and this song is a portrait of that struggle for me.”

The video for ‘My Evil’, meanwhile, is a tribute to The Sopranos: “When I got the idea to make a video based on the intro credits of Tony driving through Jersey, I knew I had to do it with my friend Richard Orofino. He’s possibly even a bigger Sopranos fan than I am and he did an incredible job mapping out a lot of the original locations from the show, including Tony’s house that we see at the end of the video. This whole thing was super DIY, just me and Richard (and his camcorder) having the time of our lives and being embarrassing superfans. It’s not exactly shot for shot of the original but, to brag for a sec, I’m truly amazed at how close we were able to get it.”
