Breton have released the video for their latest single ‘Envy’.
‘Envy is taken from their second album ‘War Room Stories’ which is released by Cut Tooth/Believe Recordings on 3rd February 2014.
The album was written during a year spent touring incessantly and playing festivals across the world. It was recorded this summer at the Funkhaus in Berlin – a building with the same otherworldly weirdness as Breton’s beloved creative HQ, The Lab, which was demolished last summer to make way for luxury flats.
Located in the highly industrial, distinctly un-hipster Mitte district of the city, Funkhaus Studios used to house 3,000 communist workers who would write and broadcast propaganda in the form of news and drama to the entire Eastern Bloc and is fitted with all the trappings of the former sound effects studio – a fact that proved perfect for Breton’s innate inquisitiveness.
Here is the new video,
Breton also employed the services of the Macedonian Radio Symphonic Orchestra who appear on five tracks throughout the album. The band recorded the tracks earmarked for orchestration on a laptop, translated them into sheet music and flew to Macedonia where the 44 piece orchestra then played them live in the studio.
Breton will play the following UK dates:
March 3rd – Bristol, Louisiana
March 4th – Manchester, Soup Kitchen
March 5th – London, Village Underground
