The Notwist Reveal Dates; Video for “Kong”

The Notwist Premiere New Video For “Kong”, Announce North American Tour In Support Of Close To The Glass, starting June 9th in New York City @ Webster Hall.

The Notwist have scheduled a North American headlining tour in support of Close To The Glass, their forthcoming album. The trek begins June 9th in New York, NY at Webster Hall and currently ends on July 4th weekend at Sasquatch Music Festival. The bands previously announced European tour schedule begins February 24th in Wiesbaden, DE at Schlachthof, with a series of tour dates that currently end July 19th in Gräfenhainichen, DE at the Melt! Festival.

Today, the band share the official video for “Kong,” the lead single from Close To The Glass, an animated visual directed by Yu Sato and featuring illustrations from Tim Divall. The video for “Kong” is based on a true story that involved Marcus Acher and his family being trapped in their home during an Ammer River flood in Weilheim, Germany.  During the experience, the young Acher resorted to fantasy, secretly hoping a superhero would save his family as the waters rose around them.

The album will also be available in the following territories: in Japan from Afterhours on February 12th; in Australia via Spunk on February 21st; and in Europe via City Slang on February 24th. Close To The Glass features “Kong” and the title track, along with highlights  “Run Run Run,” and “Casino.”
