Pet Symmetry Release "Stare Collection" Music Video
Pet Symmetry and Polyvinyl Records are excited to share the new music video for “Stare Collection,” premiering today on Noisey. The track comes off their recently-released sophomore record, Vision, which won praise from the likes of Stereogum, A.V. Club, Brooklyn Vegan, and more. Directed by Sean Kelly, the video creates an imagined future in which the band members reconvene 30 years from now to rock out again and think back to the good old days - the twist is that it stars each of their real-life dads, John Czaja, Thomas Weiss, and Tony Nuccio, as their future selves! Pet Symmetry will be on tour throughout the US this fall, including a string of dates with Beach Slang. All upcoming tour dates are listed below.

Praise for Pet Symmetry...
“Vision sees Pet Symmetry easing into the identity they’ve crafted for themselves over the last four years like they’ve got a serious future in their sights.” - Noisey
“Vision does indeed sound like a Chicago band rediscovering its Jersey roots, evoking the freewheeling, try-whatever spirit of early Into It. Over It. and Dowsing with a craftsmanship forged by collaboration.” - Stereogum
“Pet Symmetry is one of our favorite Chicago bands… ...They’re fun, spunky, and full of brassy attitude” - A.V. Club
Vision marks the second full-length release from Pet Symmetry. Recorded by Dave Downham (Beach Slang, Pattern Is Movement), it will be the band’s 6th release in all, and is the follow-up to their debut LP Pets Hounds, which won praise from The FADER, AV Club, Noisey, Stereogum, Brooklyn Vegan, and more.
Vision, the band’s first release with long-running indie label Polyvinyl Records, adopts the moodiness and heartfelt tones its creators are best known for, there’s an underlying sense of playful snarkiness behind it all. Its 11 songs are fully embraced by their Pet Symmetry alter egos in an anything goes mentality.
