Chicago rockers Smith Westerns are the stars of their own short film, “Die With Your Chin Up.” Directed by Ray Concepcion, the video shows the band as they work on their second record, “Dye It Blonde.” They also talk about the recording process, what’s different now that they’re signed to a label, and how they test to see if the album is any good.

“Dye It Blonde” came out in January on Fat Possum. Smith Westerns will play Bonnaroo in June.
