Hello dear friends of the internet,
First off, we're excited today to announce the next single and video off "The Big Black & The Blue" will be "Ghost Town". "Ghost Town" is very dear to us and singing this song at our shows is always a highlight for us. We can honestly say that we are happy with its music video, the director Mats Udd and his crew did a fantastic job and really captured the spirit of the song. We filmed it during a beautiful summer's day at a wheat field and a meadow in Stockholm. It's inspired by "Picnic At Hanging Rock" among other things. The shooting was a lot of fun, but we got over 100 mosquito bites each (!!). However, it's all for the art, right?

Secondly, the b-side of the "Ghost Town" single is our cover of Fever Ray's "When I Grow Up". This song is so beautiful and haunting and we tried to capture the beauty of it. A tribute to our mentor Frau Rabid. We hope you like it. The single will be released the 28th of September digitally, and a limited edition 7" will be available through our and for sale on tour.
Lastly, we're getting ready for our next US tour which we truly are looking forward too. We're lucky enough to have Ferraby Lionheart on the entire tour, Sea of Cortez as a special guest in Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco, and more to be announced very soon - we cant wait to hear everyone!
