Following the announcement of their highly anticipated second album ‘A Picture Of Good Health’, a second B-listing on BBC 6 Music and a blistering BBC Radio 1 Maida Vale session for Jack Saunders, Hull outfit LIFE have now shared a new video for their latest single ‘Hollow Thing’.

The video was directed by LIFE and Josh Moore (who also filmed and edited the video) Speaking about the new video frontman Mez Green said the following:

 “This video is the soul laid bare. Fading memories projected onto aging skin but held forever in the photos of the past. Time melts like butter on a fat cats tongue, filling the mouth with guilty pleasure. It lasts for mere seconds before turning into painful emptiness. Dissolving like spoilt acid in the dark corners of an evil morning.

 Sane dogs bark at mad doors

Mad men eat on cold floors

That shallow sound, the pointless hum

That hollow thing. Endless. Numb.”

‘Hollow Thing’ is the second single to be taken from LIFE’s new album (full track list below). Produced by Luke Smith (Foals) and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Parquet Courts), the band home in on a bigger and more focused sound whilst also channelling the lyrical content inwards. Whereas the band’s debut album ‘Popular Music’ was broadly political, the new album takes a more personal approach with beguilingly honest and brave lyrics that are bold in both sound and feeling, whilst also retaining the core DNA of their previous material.

Alongside the new video the band have also announced a series of EU/UK headline tour dates. The band recently embarked on a sold out two-week European tour as main support for IDLES as well as playing one of three sold-out London shows at the Electric Ballroom and have played packed out sets at various festivals throughout the year including: Glastonbury, The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Handmade Festival and more.

‘A Picture Of Good Health’ is due out 20th September 2019 via band’s own label ‘Afghan Moon’ and also sees them partner for the first time with [PIAS].
