Virginia based band of brothers Pontiak are gearing up for the release of INNOCENCE, their newest full-length, on January 28th. SPIN premiered a new video for "Lack Lustre Rush," a song as fuzzy as it is infectious, which was directed by the band themselves and filmed upside-down. Check it out for yourself below. The band is available for interviews for album and tour press.

This is the first time the performance has been available in its entirety. Watch the 18-minute short-film here.
