The Fur Coats (Pop Punk) stream music video for “When Will You Die?”

Texas pop-punk trio The Fur Coats are streaming a music video for their charmingly named song “When Will You Die?”. Watch it below.

The rather strange video fits perfectly with the rather strange topic of the song. The Fur Coats guitarist/singer Marc Ruvolo had this to say on the subject matter:

“On this one I’m singing from the point of view of a beetle as he wonders how long it will be until the annoying human race finally kill themselves off. Everyone knows that the patient, ever-watching insects will one day re-inherit the earth.”

The track is from their recently released album “Gumballs in the Meritocracy” which came out on June 6th.
