Austin rockers My Jerusalem premiered their new music video for current single “No One Gonna Give You Love” today on VEVO. Watch the video directed by Erica Silverman HERE. The song is from the band’s full-length album A Little Death released this past summer via Washington Square Music.
“We shot the video in an afternoon at Donns Depot, my favorite bar in America. It’s one of the last standing reminders of how cool old Austin used to be, says frontmanJeff Klein. “The video gives a glimpse into how innocent, awkward, and at times futile the search for love can be. The desire to be loved and to reciprocate that devotion follows us from childhood to the grave. It’s the most painfully beautiful thing about us.”
My Jerusalem is currently on the road with The Sounds performing songs off their recent LP A Little Death. The band has spent this past fall and winter on tour in the U.S., recently completing a string of dates with The Psychedelic Furs.

Though My Jerusalem has been kicking around in some capacity since 2010, A Little Death is the first album with a solidified lineup. Previously, the band had been more of a collective, with contributions from Klein’s revolving door of friends from previous projects, Gutter Twins and The Twilight Singers, and who had also played in bands like Cursive, Okkervil River and the Polyphonic Spree. Now, with a full-time lineup of members including Grant Van Amburgh (drums), Kyle Robarge (bass), and Jon Merz (guitar, keys, horns), My Jerusalem is a true band. Alongside standout tracks like the high-energy “Rabbit Rabbit” and the slowed down banger “No One Gonna Give You Love,” A Little Death is an album that pays homage to a classic era of rock and roll, one that lacked pretension and focused on honesty in songwriting.
