1/19/12 – Vesterbro, DK – Lille Vega

Obviously, expect more dates in the very near future. They also released the video for “Keep Me Waiting”, off their latest album Lenses Alien (review), earlier this week:

The first scene has the scenery of a foggy Halloween night, with it quickly transitioning into days filled with sunshine, green grass (both kinds), and carefree acts of vandalism. The final one-third allows for some heavy interpretation. It’s not quite clear what happens, watch for yourself. It just feels like a Richard Kelly film for some reason… I mean that as a complement. Kudos to director Adam Kurland.

Also, fans will be interested in some session videos the group recorded during the Fall 2011 tour.
