Watch Pussy Riot’s Video for New Protest Song “Chaika”

Russian band Pussy Riot are determined to fix the political system in their homeland (and also the United States), and each new song further proves that determination. The band just released the video for “Chaika,” a new track that hopes to bring attention to Russia’s Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika, who has long been accused of operating in collusion with gangs.

The song is much different from Pussy Riot’s earlier sound, relying more heavily on a danceable beat than punk guitars. It was produced by TV On the Radio’s Dave Sitek, but his touch isn’t as heavy-handed as it has been in the past.

The band issued a statement about the intent of the video:

Pussy Riot demands an immediate investigation against General Prosecutor Chaika and his family, as well as against all the top officials in his office. We hope that the CHAIKA music video will help to convince people that we cannot live in a country where its top law enforcement official is the brightest symbol of corruption and murder. Pussy Riot hopes that people around the world will help us voice our outrage and turn Russia into a country where people like Chaika can no longer exist.

The band also issued a long statement about working with Sitek, which can be found in its entirety over at Pitchfork.

Watch “Chaika” below, but beware: a chicken gets devoured in the first five seconds.
