Inspired by American greats Stan Brakhage, Kenneth Anger and William Eggleston, filmmaker Tim Saccenti (Depeche Mode, Flying Lotus, Animal Collective) said the goal was to transform “the thick southern tones and ripe textures of deep Florida into a dream-state visual backdrop for the song.”
Carson from the band writes “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.”
Moreover, following a string of European dates and a US tour, the Tampa-based five-piece have confirmed a headlining North American tour for the fall. The tour kicks off in Mobile, AL on 19th September, making stops at LA’s Echoplex on 27th September and Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on 14th October. All tour dates, with supports and available ticket links, are below.
Merchadise’s new album After The End will be released on 4AD on 25th August.
