Following packed-out appearances at 2000 Trees and TRUCK festivals, Brighton trio TIGERCUB have revealed a stunning new video for their latest single ‘The Divided States of Us’ which is out now on all good digital streaming platforms and providers.
The new video is a reference to the white void prison scene from George Lucas' film THX 118, as front man Jamie Hall exmplains of the concept: "I see this video as a fresh slate, like we're building the band and everything surrounding it up from the ground again. We wanted it to feel like we were playing in a huge expansive digital cave. It was filmed in HD in Brighton and then I ran it through a distortion app on my iPhone and basically fucked it up so as individuals we were being divided into three parts every time the music gushes and pours. It’s kind of a visual metaphor for the recording process for the EP in a weird way."
As well as appearing at this year’s Reading & Leeds Festivals, the band are also pleased to reveal a run of UK headline tour dates throughout October 2017 (see below for details).
Marking yet another sharp change of direction from a band who seem hell-bent on staying one step ahead of the curve, front man Jamie Hall commented on the new single: “There are two sides to ‘The Divided States of Us’ - the literal meaning and the metaphorical. Politically I feel like things are almost 50/50 split at the moment, there’s no longer a centre ground, but it’s also about having a divided mental state internally.”
The track is the first to be taken from their brand new EP titled
Evolve or Die is released 29th September via Alcopop! Records
