We recently ranked “The House That Heaven Built,” the single off Japandroids’ sophomore album Celebration Rock, as our song of the year. The song’s video was also one of the year’s best, and like the song, it’s a celebration of life on the road, featuring black-and-white footage of the Vancouver duo performing live, eating chicken and shooting Molotov cocktails with shotguns.
Pitchfork.tv premiered the Jim Larson-directed video over the summer, and they recently released another video with behind-the-scenes footage and commentary from Japandroids. Check it out below, via Pitchfork.tv. Below that is the original “The House That Heaven Built” video.
