Friday Night Lights: Season 3 "Devil Town" Promo

by at . Comments

We haven't caught any real scenes from Season Three of Friday Night Lights, which debuts October 1, but this brief promo has been making the Internet rounds, and DirecTV is definitely looking to put its mark on the new season.

The latest ad for the upcoming season gives Friday Night Lights an indie rock, almost supernatural makeover. There is no sign of football anywhere in the clip, but there's defnitely plenty of drama in the heart of Dillon, Texas.

Heightening the ghostly atmosphere is the soundtrack of the clip, a cover of Daniel Johnston's "Devil Town" by indie rock's Bright Eyes, a song of lonely reverberation - sounding as if it's being performed in an empty church.

Check out the cool, and very different, Friday Night Lights preview below ...

Yeah was gonna say the same thing. thats not bright eyes, although he does do a cover of the track as well, just not such a studio polished version.


The clip does look amazing. Tony Lucca actually sings the cover of "Devil Town" though, not Bright Eyes

Friday Night Lights Quotes

Please don't sleep with my sister Tim, that's like incest.


We will all at some time in our lives, fall. Life is so very fragile, we are all vulnerable, and we will all at some point in our lives, fall, we will all fall.
We must carry this in our hearts, that what we have is special, that it can be taken from us, and that when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will all be tested.
It is these times, it is this pain, that allows us to look inside ourselves.
