[Video] The Tontons: “Veida”

The Tontons kicked off Fun Fun Fun Fest this year with the premier of their latest video on Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy blog today. The four piece Houston-based band is preparing for two shows at the weekend festival in Austin, Texas. If nothing else the video, directed by Mark Armes, is the perfect way for The Tontons to head into FFF. Shot throughout the band’s travels throughout 2013, creating a montage that will continue with the pair of shows this weekend. As Asli Omar explains it to The Wall Street Journal, “This year alone 6-7 months of our lives have been, in one way or another, on the road. It’s a completely unique rollercoaster-like lifestyle with a lot of ups and downs. We think, as a band, this music video showcases that perfectly.”

“Veida” is the lead single off The Tontons anticipated album, due out in February. Be sure to catch them down in Austin this weekend as they play back to back shows, opening for Kurt Vile on Thursday, November 7th at Mohawk’s Official Fun Fun Fun Fest Nite Show and a daytime set on Friday, November 8th on the Orange Stage. Check out the video for “Veida” below.
