La Dispute have debuted a new video for the track "For Mayor in Splitsville" today on AV Cluboff their upcoming full-length Rooms of the House. Directed by friends of the band, drummer Brad Vander Lugt explains of the video "We sent the track to some close friends and gave them the freedom to rework their interpretations of the song into a visual form. We you to listen and view in the same way - however you see fit."
Jason Heller of AV Club says "the group has managed to make an evocative video for the Roomstrack 'For Mayor In Splitsville' that stands alone as a sample of La Dispute’s evolving songcraft and raw-nerved soul."
