Fuccing the Devil With Against Me!'s Andrew Seward

If there is something that is sadly lacking in the world, it's musicians directing music videos. Some do it, of course, like Blitzen Trapper's Brian Adrian Koch or Taylor Momsen who does her own storyboards. For better or for worse, though, most bands turn their product over to a professional director and often times aren't involved in any way.

But then you get something awesome like Andrew Seward of Against Me! directing a low-budget but excellent adaptation of Andrew Jackson Jihad's "Fucc the Devil" on an off day while on tour.

"Definitely hard to find time, but this just happened to be a day off when we were on tour together," says Seward. "What a way to spend a day off in Medford, Oregon! I adore AJJ's music and they are great people. We made a fun video in the spring in Gainesville when they were playing a show. That was the beginning of a gorgeous relationship. I also like staying up late at night editing video."
