Reverend & The Makers reveal the video for new single, ‘Elastic Fantastic,’ by multi BAFTA-nominated director Chris Shepherd. John McClure says of the video: “Every summer as a kid my family went to the Chapel St Leonard’s on holiday in a caravan. In the club at lunchtime, they had the wrestling on and the referee doubled as the keyboard player in the turn at night. This is our daft attempt at revelling in those nostalgic memories from a bygone era, where our Nanans would scream at Klondike Kate and Big Daddy and hit them with their handbags. There’s not really a reason why we did it. It just seemed like a good idea, which is always the best reason to do anything right?” New song ‘Elastic Fantastic’ is taken from the ‘Best of Reverend & The Makers’ a double vinyl, double CD and Digital download album released through Cooking Vinyl on September 20th 2019.
‘Best of Reverend & The Makers’ includes the bands singles and fan favourites, along with two new songs ‘Elastic Fantastic’ (featuring Rich Westley from The Moonlandingz) and previous single, ‘Te Quiero Pero.’
Fresh from playing the Main Stage at Coombe Weekender in Coventry this weekend, Reverend and the Makers play nine headline shows, ‘R& TM Best of Tour,’ in October and an Arena show at Leeds - First Direct Arena supporting Shed Seven on December 7th.
