Deleted Scenes release "Stutter" video staring Dustin Diamond

DC quartet Deleted Scenes has debuted a dark new video for their single ‘Stutter,’ featuring Dustin Diamond (Screech from Saved By The Bell) having one of the worst days of his life. According to director Alec Sutherland, “the band wanted to make a video about an actor coming unhinged. They threw in a handful of names of the type of actor they were thinking. A couple of months and a hundred or so phone calls to Dustin’s manager later, we found ourselves in an LA diner sitting across from him, cutting up chicken fried steaks and listening to the horrors of participating in Celebrity Big Brother. The next day we shot this video.”
In 2012, the band released their critically acclaimed album, Young People’s Church of the Air, which contained a mix of studio sounds and home-recorded lo-fi noise, and was recorded with Nick Krill (The Spinto Band). The album was praised by NPR, SPIN, Pitchfork, Paste, and The Washington Post, among others, who said, “if Deleted Scenes isn’t the best rock band in Washington, it’s certainly on the very short list.” The songs took on a live identity over the course of 300 shows on tour, including performances with Cursive, Wild Nothing, Abe Vigoda, The Antlers and more.
