Everyone's favorite Ian Curtis clone returns with a new album Banks and a cold and somewhat cynical new video for "Young Again". When Paul Banks declares, "I feel young again. Rah Rah", you can really feel it, right? Youth? It's nothing worth envying. Kids are evil, and they pay dearly in this video.
