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

LatitudeJAMESFINALSorry to say that due to being stranded for a time at Porto airport, the band missed their slot on the Obelisk Stage at Latitude today, so the performance has been moved to 12 noon tomorrow on the 6 Music stage – please spread the word!

Festival organiser Melvin Benn had this to say to local publication EADT24: “We have been trying to work out all day if we could get them in today. They had a flight to LA tomorrow but that has been put back to tomorrow evening [to accommodate tomorrow’s gig]; we have been so keen for them to play. They will play on the BBC 6Music stage tomorrow at noon. It’s just fantastic that they wanted to play, we want them here.”
