The Fat White Family have unveiled their new video to their forthcoming single,”Tinfoil Deathstar”, the second single released via their own Without Consent label, off their album, Songs For Our Mothers, the single will be available this Friday, May 27th.
The video was directed by acclaimed Canadian film and TV director Chris Grismer, who has previously directed videos for the likes of Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene and Death From Above 1979.
In other news, the band will be performing at several festivals across the UK and Europe this summer, and making their first trip to Australia. Additionally, the Black Lips have been added as main support to their show at the Brixton Academy in London on September 17th. Their biggest UK show to date, and a short hop across the Stockwell Road from The Queens Head pub, where the band kicked things off back in 2012 with their legendary Slide-In nights.
Talking about their return to Brixton, the band said:
It is with joyous remorse we would like to announce a very special performance at Brixton Academy September 17th, for sweet mother Brixton is on the road to well dressed irrelevance, just another open casket in a city bent on deathly formalities. Nostalgia is no substitute for community and dialogue; that being said, if we cannot prove a good example, let us be the sad reminder.
WE SHALL ALL BE CLEANSED.
