Stars Launch 'Hold On When You Get Love' Music Video Announce Us Fall 2013 Tour

'I wanted to make a video that celebrated the following things: 1. Being yourself 2. Being someone else 3. Being fucking fabulous 4. Showing up, putting on your heels and staying alive. Drag queens know a couple of things the rest of us choose not to know: you are who you imagine yourself to be, and you can be a star even if, especially if, nobody ever knows who you really are. That's the spirit of pop, and this is a video for a POP song that most people will never hear. So I thought it all went together like Sonny and Cher. Hope you all enjoy it.' - Torquil Campbell, Stars

Stars have launched the music video for their latest single "Hold On When You Get Love And Let Go When You Give It," directed by George Vale and Torquil Campbell. The band will kick off their fall tour at Riot Fest in Chicago, along with shows across the U.S. and an intimate stop at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. The fall dates follow a busy first half of 2013 which had Stars touring around the globe - from Australia and Asia to the main stage at Coachella.

Stars are Canada's best-kept secret indie institution. Over the course of more than a decade together, the band has consistently proven themselves adept at producing incisively sharp, beautifully orchestrated pop music. Their sixth album, 'The North' (ATO Records), is their finest record to date - a culmination of all they have learned and lost; a record of what it is to love today, of how to live a life in music. The North marked the band's highest Billboard chart debut in career.
