WORLD PREMIERE – our video for Curse Curse revealed!

18th August 2014

“This video was conceived by a spontaneous moment in an Athens gig and executed two days later in a Porto one. On the night of the filming it started to rain. The rain blew up the spotlights and grounded the camera drone. Somehow it didn’t dampen the spirits of the 15,000 strong audience and actually aided the visual excitement. Thank you to all who added to this magical moment captured in time. To those in Athens, Porto, and all our audiences across 32 years who have helped shape and create our intense and playful wild performances. With love and chaos.” ~ Tim

Our video for Curse Curse, filmed live at Marés Vivas in Portugal – enjoy!
