Death and The Penguin Reveal ‘Leatherface’ video

London avant-garde alternative rock band Death and The Penguin have revealed a stunning animated video for their latest single ‘Leatherface’.

The track is the latest to be taken from their recently released debut album, Anomie, which is out now on Lonely Voyage Records (Poly-Math, Jean Jean).

The news comes ahead of a run of recently announced August UK tour dates with Chicago math-punks Space Blood, and a performance at this year’s ArcTanGent Festival on 18th August, with further tour dates TBA.

Commenting on the new video and track, animated by Gender Roles bassist Jared Tomkins and featuring artwork from Samuel Fairlamb, the band explained: “Leatherface is simultaneously one of the weirdest and catchiest songs we’ve written. We love a good riff and that’s where this track started, but it really went on a journey after that.

“We were thrilled to get Jared working on the video. It was inspired by some of the original artwork created for the album, which features in the video, and the angular screeches and squeals of the track itself.”

So far picking up praise from the likes of Kerrang! Magazine, PROG, VISIONS, Pop Matters, Metal Injection, Clash, The Line of Best Fit, Original Penguin, Killing Moon, Punktastic, Already Heard, Musical Mathematics and many more, the band have spent the year steadily building towards their album release with a string of stand-alone singles.

 BRAND NEW VIDEO: ‘A Beautiful Day For Murder’

LABEL: ENERGY SNAKE RECORDS

securedownload-1Cinematic psych outfit Saint Agnes have released their new single, ‘A Beautiful Day for Murder’ via visceral London Label Energy Snake Records. The track is a twisted ballad; a love song to death itself. ‘It’s the soundtrack to a dark and beautiful Western where Lana Del Ray stares down nick Cave in a saloon bar stand-off’ says founding member Kitty Austen, who fronts the band with Jon Tufnell. After releasing their debut single as a duo and packing out The Sebright Arms in suitably raucous fashion, the pair return with a trademark slice of cinematic, Tarantino-style lushness. 

 

B-side ‘Where the Lightning Strikes’ is blues stomping, dirty rock n roll with psychedelic organs, screaming guitars and haunting harmonica. ‘Imagine Ennio Morricone writing the score for a remake of Easy Rider.’ 

 

Jon and Kitty met whilst playing in their respective bands (The Lost Souls Club & Lola Colt) and immediately bonded over musical influences. Their onstage chemistry is palpable and they are now joined by Matt Devine and Ben Chernett, the no-nonsense bass and drums powerhouse who dress as sharply as The Bad Seeds. 

 

Saint Agnes are very much a DIY band and like fellow psych-collective Temples, record and produce their own music in their East London studio and have directed both upcoming music videos.
