Blood Red Shoes Announce Tour + Share Video

Blood Red Shoes Announce Tour + Share new Video for "An Animal". Blood Red Shoes will release their new single ‘An Animal’ through Jazz Life on March 3.

Blood Red Shoes have announced details of a UK tour in April/May. The dates will be the band’s first since playing a sold-out show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire last January and will feature DZ Deathrays and Slaves as rotating main support acts.

“This tour comes nearly a year and a half since our last UK shows so it’ll be great to finally get back into it on home turf,” enthuses Steven. “The new album is full of songs that we’ve been aching to play live since we finished recording, so April can’t come around soon enough for us. We’ve also decided to ban bass players from the stage and hook up two of our favourite bands of the moment as our revolving supports – we’ve got DZ Deathrays and Slaves playing every night, so it’s a two-piece guitar and drums overload tour. Intensity in ten cities”

Blood Red Shoes will release their new single ‘An Animal’ through Jazz Life on 3rd March. Taken from their forthcoming, eponymously-titled album (also out 3rd March), the single will include B-side ‘Wretch’ which features Eoin from Drenge on lead vocals. Directed by Brass Moustache (Mark Donne and Joe Morris), the video to ‘An Animal’ can be viewed above:

“A lot of different people pitched ideas for this video and it was mind blowing how sexist many of them were,” explains Steven. “With that in mind, and the current state of pop music videos, we came up with something fun that wasn’t just us standing there playing instruments. We got a naked, running businessman and stuck two fingers up at sexism in music by swapping gender roles and having Laura-Mary play a mugger and me playing a jilted bride.”
