‘Enemy’ Video, US Dates

Horror! Disgust! These are the things that I want to Know. Madness! Maybe I should’ve saved these leftover dreams for something else. This is a bit of comedy about Everything. Mars isn’t the kind of placebo to raise your kids, in factotum it’s cold as hell. I think the video speaks for itself.

New Album This August

After The End,will be released on 4AD on August 25th.

Like their albums before them, After The End was recorded and produced by the band, this time over a six-month period in the house they share in Tampa. A real achievement in showing what bands can achieve themselves, the only outside influence came when they enlisted mixing help from Gareth Jones – the man famed for his work with Tuxedomoon, Depeche Mode’s Berlin Trilogy of Construction Time AgainSome Great Reward, and Black Celebration, and more recently Interpol, These New Puritans and Grizzly Bear.
