The Scoop: Pop punk outfit The Swellers is currently premiering a brand new music video for their song “Got Social” over at MTVU.

You can watch the video here, or check it out now below.
The Spin: Check out what Nick Diener (guitarist) had to say about the video below.
“Max Moore’s (director) vision for this video matched the feeling of the song completely,” says guitarist/vocalist Nick Diener. “It encompasses the awkward attempts at coming from obscurity back into the social world. Weird how in our late twenties and early thirties, things can still feel like high school. Even if you can get someone’s attention and do something really great, it’s history the second the next big thing comes along. What seems like a rather typical party/underdog situation ends up with some beautiful imagery, even some directly coming from our album’s artwork, and a feeling of “I’ve been there”.”
