“Chillin’ On The Beach With My Best Friend Jesus Christ,” the new video from Charleston-based SUSTO premieres on Nerdist. Of their new summer single the band says, “Growing up in deeply religious households and revering Jesus Christ as a personalized figure; we wanted to portray a real religious experience in a way that reflects our contemporary lifestyle. In no way is the song or video meant to be offensive, on the contrary we are trying to bridge the gap between believer and non-believer. We want to encourage a light-hearted approach to finding unity in a world of differences.” Watch the video HEREon Nerdist and share HERE. The single is also available for download at the following link http://apple.co/290sVze and a vinyl 7” pre-order HERE.
