Ween and Moistboyz guitarist Dean Ween has released a new video for previously released single “Exercise Man”. The video is his first since 2000’s bizarre Trey Parker and Matt Stone produced video for Ween single “Even If You Don’t”.
Ween’s new video adequately complements “Exercise Man’s” near cartoonish cow-punk stomp. Decked head to toe in spandex, Ween bikes through suburban traffic. Ween bassist Dave Dreiwitz, Meat Puppets guitarist Curt Kirkwood, and drummer Ray Kubian bash out the track in the background. Watch the video in all its glory below.
Ween recently announced his new group, The Dean Ween Group, will release their debut album, The Deaner Album, on October 21. The band will begin touring, supported by the Meat Puppets on October 18th in support of the album.
Dean Ween’s work with The Dean Ween Group reflects his desire to collaborate with varying musicians. Ween recruited Meat Puppets’ guitarist Curt Kirkwood, veteran punk drummer Chuck Treece, and Funkadelic guitarist Mike Hampton, among others, to perform on the album.
The Deaner Album will mark Dean Ween’s first studio LP produced without either his Ween or Moistboyz bandmates. Following Ween’s 2012 hiatus, Dean Ween refused to play guitar for over a year. His 2013 effort with Moistboyz, Moistboyz V, saw his ultimate return to studio production. He has since worked extensively with artists including Josh Homme and Mark Lanegan.
Dean Ween reunited with primary project Ween earlier this year for a short run of spring tour dates. Following successful appearances at Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival and New York’s Terminal 5, the legendary jam group announced a string of summer and fall tour dates, which will conclude October 15th at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Ween played Bonnaroo and Lockn earlier in the summer.
