Track from new album due next week.
The Notwist, with a Sub Pop album, Close to the Glass, dropping next week (Feb. 25) on Sub Pop, have scheduled a rare North American headlining tour. It begins June 9th in New York, NY at Webster Hall and ends on July 4th weekend at Sasquatch Music Festival. (The band’s previously announced European tour schedule begins February 24th in Wiesbaden, DE at Schlachthof.) Meanwhile, you can check out the video for first single “Kong”:
“Kong” video is an animated visual directed by Yu Sato and featuring illustrations from Tim Divall. The vid is based on a true story that involved Marcus Acher and his family being trapped in their home during an Ammer River flood in Weilheim, Germany. During the experience, the young Acher resorted to fantasy, secretly hoping a superhero would save his family as the waters rose around them.
