Steve Mason has announced details of two U.K. shows in April. These follow the release of his forthcoming album Monkey Minds In The Devil's Time, which is out on March 18th 2013 through Double Six.
Steve Mason also recently premiered the video for his new single, Oh My Lord. Released digitally on the same day as the album, and featuring the B-side Pills At The Scene Club, it was recorded during the album sessions with producer Dan Carey in his south London studio.
The video was directed by Institute For Eyes (Luke Seomore & Joseph Bull) who have previously worked on films and videos for the likes of Wild Beasts, Moby, Delilah and just completed a short film for Channel 4, The First Dead Lies.
Working with director of photography David Proctor (These New Puritans, Esben and the Witch, Wild Beasts) and aesthetically inspired by Japanese 1960s avant-garde cinema, the video, shot on the outskirts of east London, is an exploration of a mysterious character haunted by the perpetual noise of modern society. As the narrative progresses the video moves further into the internal world of the central character played by Barry Ward.
Tickets for the shows are on sale now priced at o12.50 in Manchester and o17 in London via seetickets (Manchester) and ticketweb (London)
The list of dates is as follows:
10th Manchester Gorilla
11th London Village Underground
