Two new Balkans videos hit the Internet

Balkans recently returned from a West Coast tour that featured a slightly different lineup as guitarist Brett Miller and drummer Stanley Vergilis opted out to stay in school. This on-the-spot video for the acoustic version of a new song, called “Slow Return,” recorded in Echo Park just north and west of downtown Los Angeles, appeared on Terror Eyes recently. In the background we see former White Light Forest Choir/Soft Powers drummer Danny Bailey (beating handfuls of brush), along with bassist Woody Shortridge (tapping sticks) and guitarist Henry Kaiser (just kind of hanging out). ... And no it's not that Henry Kaiser. There's no word from the band on how long-term these changes may be.

Apparently singer Frankie Broyles was suffering through a gnarly case of mononucleosis when the video was shot. Mono is no joke, and they had to bring him home early to recover.

Earlier this week Fader debuted the ultra-violent Ryan Winsor-directed “Let You Have It" video from Balkans’ Balkans. It’s spectacular, and if you’ve ever wanted to see these guys get taken out Mafia-style, check it out below.
