Having already sold out 11 of their 15-date March UK tour, The Wombats have revealed a new music video for “Lemon to A Knife Fight“, the first single from their forthcoming new album, ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’, due February 9th 2018 via Kobalt Music Recordings.
A tale of redemption, the video arrives dark, grisly, yet positively empowered. Speaking of his inspiration, director Finn Keenan explains:
“The idea for this video came from the line in the brief ‘David Lynch meets Power Rangers’. I wanted to make something that started off dark, surreal and little bit disturbing but then flip it on its head with a big ole’ twist that led to a ludicrous ending. These hunters do this every month, but this time they picked the wrong werewolf. I wanted the viewer to feel such sympathy for the main character, and such disgust for her captors that when the tables turn it’s quite the satisfying romp!”
Watch “Lemon To Knife Fight” below.
The Wombats will are set to headline North America this January, and join The Pixies and Weezer through the US in June and July. The band will also play UK headline shows through March 2018.
