ARROWS OF LOVE RELEASE NEW VIDEO FOR ‘PRETEND FRIENDS’, ANNOUNCE SXSW SHOWCASES
Raging, screaming and railing, Arrows of Love continue to batter their indelible mark on the music scene, returning off the back of their debut album ‘Everything’s Fucked’ with more news for March than we can tidily fit into an opening line…
Firstly there’s the new video, a glorious and menacing visual slice for their track ‘Pretend Friends’ which you can watch HERE, directed by Skógr(whose previous credits include Fat White Family) and released through 1-2-3-4 Records; then there’s the announcement that the band are heading to Texas to play a TRIPLE showcase at this year’s SXSW Festival; and that the group have also been announced as one of PRSF’s ‘Momentum’ funded artists for the year.
And that’s just what’s happening this March. We haven’t even mentioned the SECOND album, to be produced by Jim Sclavunos (Grinderman / Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds) and mastered by Bob Shellac (Shellac), the fact that they’re the faces of campaigns for both Marshall and Dr Martins and part of the Guinness ‘Amplify’ promotion. That their live shows are as equally intimidating as they are destructive and awe-inspiring. But of course that’s all to come, let’s all just take a breath here and agree that, on this form, this is the year that Arrows of Love break a whole lot more than just venues and bones…
‘Pretend Friends’ is available right now as a free download from HERE. Arrows of Love debut album ‘Everything’s Fucked’ is also out now on 1-2-3-4 Records from all good record stores and online sites.
