Pkew Pkew Pkew are premiering a two-part music video for their singles "Mid-20s Skateboarder" and "Bloodclot". Both songs come off of the band's new self-titled album, coming June 10th via Royal Mountain Records.

"This video is based on the real life events of our producer Jon Drew breaking his arm skateboarding with me in that very same pool! Also, Emmett dislocated his big toe while we were shooting the video, so we got to stop in at the emergency room again. Truth be told, the toe popped out while we were playing basketball, we decided to take a break because shooting was going so smoothly.  THPS 2 is the greatest video game of all time, I only ever played as Rodney Mullen, Chad Muska and Spider-Man, Auto-kick off.” - Mike Warne (singer/guitarist)

"This was mountains of fun to shoot. Thats really what we wanted to do here, express the sheer joy that skateboarding brings even when you're terrible at it. All of us played a butt-load of thps2 in our youths and we always got a false sense of talent from stringing together mega-combos in that game. When you actually get the drive to head outside and step on your skateboard you realize it's not so much like riding a bike, it's a skill you have to constantly nurture. Heading into our 30's we have multiple wake up calls that reveal your body's age, there's a new crop of young kids who are just pushing skateboarding further and further, but the best part about skateboarding is you are always part of the family regardless of whether or not you can do any tricks... Unless you're a longboarder, thats not skateboarding." - Kyle McCreight (director)
