"Way We Won't"

About a year ago, The A.V. Club reported that the once-defunct, now-resurrected lo-fi band Grandaddy was at long last heading back into the studio record its first LP since 2006’s Just Like The Fambly Cat. Well, that album is Last Place, and it finally has a release date: March 3. However, since that’s still quite a while away, the California-based quintet delivered the news along with a new video for the single “Way We Won’t,” which was released last month. It’s directed by music video veteran Chris Grieder, and it stars Jason Ritter (Another Period) as an unlucky desert hitchhiker.

“To be honest, I would have loved to have made a video based exactly on the lyrics of this song. But I really like Chris Grieder’s treatment because the main character is an outsider who has taken to wandering and can’t get accepted (picked up) by a varying array of characters,” Grandaddy vocalist Jason Lytle said of the end result. “I felt it was important to place a girl in the cast of characters, someone who had some attachment to the loner guy and perhaps, just perhaps, was responsible for putting him on that lonely road. I have to say my absolute favorite part is the very end (you have to watch it).”
