UK TOUR STARTS 24TH APRIL; FESTIVAL DATES NOW ADDED. FESTIVAL APPEARANCES INCLUDE SOLID SOUND FEST 22ND JUNE, PITCHFORK 20TH JULY AND GREEN MAN 20TH AUGUST
We’re pleased to share Low’s breathtaking new video for ‘Just Make It Stop’, the official first clip from the band’s internationally acclaimed 10th album, ‘The Invisible Way’. The video, which has a Life After People-inspired feel, posits the band in various stages of performance, shot in extreme close-up, before organic matter overtakes each frame and harnesses the warmth and frenetic energy of the song. The clip was helmed by veteran director Phillip Harder (Low’s ‘Words’, ‘Shame’, ‘Over The Ocean’, ‘Canada’) and features stop-motion animation from Britta Johnson (Fleet Foxes ‘White Winter Hymnal’).
The band’s previously announced European tour begins on 24th April at Birmingham Glee Club, with the show at London’s Barbican Centre on 30th April now sold out. Additionally, Low has also three festival dates booked in, with an appearance now confirmed at Green Man on 20th April. They’ll also be at Solid Sound and Pitchfork’s festival in the US.
‘Make It Stop; official video
The Invisible Way was produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, engineered by Tom Schick and recorded in Wilco’s studio in Chicago, IL, during the fall of 2012. The album finds Low’s majestic melancholy in full bloom yet distinguishes itself with its starker, unadorned soundscapes, layered harmonies and drummer/vocalist extraordinaire Mimi Parker singing lead on five of the 11 songs. The album tackles large issues (“the songs are about intimacy, the drug war, the class war, plain old war war, archaeology and love,” says Sparhawk) in a manner that plays a stunning counterpoint to the sublime hush of the music.
