If you see a bunch of USPS stickers tagged in black marker on your bike, your street sign, or your dog, it's probably because of Japanther. By our count, they used approximately one shit-ton of them making their new video for "Do It (Don't Try It)" which is a super conflicting message for a song title. If they're talking about making your own tags on Priority Mail labels when they say "do it," then we're way ahead of them. We've tried making a whole bunch but we always end up with that weird "S" thing everyone drew on their notebooks in school.

The Brooklyn two-piece's new album, Instant Money Magic, is available on April 15 via Seayou Records. Check out the video below and then catch them on tour and show them your cool tags. They'll be super impressed.
