Girls Expand Dates of U.S. Tour
If you can make it through the video, you can make it to the tour.

The San Francisco indie-pop, all-male foursome known as Girls will be expanding the dates for their U.S. tour. The band has quickly risen to concert headliner status after the unquestioned success of their debut album, Album, which is rife with the once stifled expressionism of band leader Christopher Owens, who spent his childhood with the controversial Children of God cult.

The “overflow of expression” that was released on Album continues with the music video for Girls’ latest single “Lust for Life.” After being pressured by their label to produce a “clean” music video, the group reacted to the pressure by making their own “Hardcore XXX Edit” which features, among other scenes, a man singing the lyrics to the song into another man’s penis as though it were a microphone. Shockingly, the band has revealed that this is a “cleaner” version of a video that they originally made to the label’s pressure.

“There's a gay porn version we were really pushing for that was incredible, nothing like anything anyone else has ever put out before. But at the same time, it's really beautiful-- about two people who love each other. We're from San Francisco, so it's not a surprise to us.”
