Here’s our new video. It’s for the song “Man Near the Surface of the Earth” from the album However Strange which you can listen to and download here or buy in the popular cassette format from Burger Records here.
The video is kind of an homage to the 1968 film The Swimmer starring Burt Lancaster, which was itself based on a story by John Cheever. We’re very grateful to director Robert Sobul and his team for making this for us. Guylaine and James even have a brief cameo a few minutes in! Sadly Chris could not make it to the shoot that day because he was busy counting stacks of gold coins in his castle. That has a moat.
Just a quick note to Los Angeles area residents: we’re playing the Part Time Punks show at The Echo on Sunday August 19, along with Seapony and Sweater Girls. Kind of a last minute addition to the calendar so we wanted to give you a heads up. We’re also playing at Burger Records in Orange County (Fullerton, to be precise) the night before, with Acorn Bcorn, The Shivas and The Memories.
We hope you’ll be able to join us for one or both of these events. We’re playing with some really stellar bands so a splendid time is guaranteed for all.
We’re playing a show at the Burger Records store in Fullerton CA on August 18 to celebrate the release of the cassette. More information under the Songkick tour dates section somewhere to the right of this post.
