Rockers We Were Promised Jetpacks get lovely and violent for 'Medicine' video: Watch the EXCLUSIVE premiere here!

Edinburgh indie-rock outfit We Were Promised Jetpacks released one of the most critically-acclaimed albums of 2009 in These Four Walls, and after spending the better part of the last two years on the road with the likes of Passion Pit, Tokyo Police Club, and Jimmy Eat World, they’re back with a new album called In the Pit of the Stomach.

It hits stores on October 4, and like its predecessor, it’s full of spectacularly jittery guitar workouts that are heavy on melody and even heavier on Scottish charm.

The album’s first single “Medicine” is a prime example — sending great bushels of guitar fuzz and breathless hi-hats tumbling down a mountain of melody.

The song’s accompanying video is a thrillingly gritty affair that carries on the grand tradition of vigilante justice by way of elaborate super-hero costumes and in-your-face violence. Watch the exclusive premiere of “Medicine” below:

As noted, there’s a little bit of Super in there, but there’s also a healthy dose of Office Space, Fight Club, and any other film that features average workaday dudes getting beaten down by their cubicled lives.

nd there’s also a cool lunchbox, which is always a plus. Spot any other influences or references? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
