The 'brutal' music video sees the band members riding bike into a pool and playing baseball with cans of beer while wearing suit.
The Nationals has unveiled a new music video for "Graceless". Directed by Sophia Peer, the black-and-white music video sees the band members going wild as they are seen riding bikes into a swimming pool and playing baseball with cans full of beer while wearing dapper suits.
"We shot it at my mom and dad's house in Cincinnati and kind of destroyed the place and ourselves along the way," vocalist Matt Berninger recently told Rolling Stone of the process of filming the video. The video's antics resulted in actual injuries to several Nationals members.
Berninger said he banged up his face a bit while riding a bike into the pool. "I had glasses on, I had bruises around my eyes where the glasses hit. It was the most brutal video we've ever done. It was really fun, but it cost us. No one died, though," he said.
"Graceless" is featured in "Trouble Will Find Me", The National's newest album, which is available everywhere now.
