Circle Jerks release Atiba Jefferson-directed “Wild in the Streets” video
Circle Jerks have released a music video for their track “Wild in the Streets.” The visual, directed by Atiba Jefferson, comes in celebration of 40 years of their 1982 record Wild in the Streets. The band will also drop a deluxe edition of the album February 18 via Trust Records.
“I grew up on ‘Wild In The Streets’, so to be asked to direct this video was a huge honor,” Jefferson says in a press release. “I wanted to capture and preserve 40 years of history but also celebrate 40 years of punk rock and skateboarding history.”
Watch the visual for “Wild in the Streets” below.
The Wild in the Streets rerelease includes, “remastered audio by Pete Lyman and rare April 1982 live performances of material from the band’s first two albums, captured at the Elite Club in San Francisco. A lavish 20-page, full-color 12-by-12-inch booklet created for this release assembles historic photographs, club flyers and an 8,200-word essay by veteran Los Angeles journalist Chris Morris, including new interviews with founding band members Keith Morris, Greg Heston and Lucky Lehrer.”
The release coincides with the February kickoff of the Circle Jerk's 40th Anniversary Tour. The band will have support from Negative Approach, Adolescents and 7Seconds. Check out a full list of dates below, and grab tickets here.
