Tigercub reveal The Divided States of Us video and announce UK headline tour
Tigercub have revealed their brand new video for The Divided States of Us and announced an October UK headline tour.
The news follows on from performances at festivals such as 2000 Trees and TRUCK, and now the trio are ready to take their show on the road.
The new video is a reference to the white void prison scene from George Lucas’ film THX 118, as front man Jamie Hall explains: “I see this video as a fresh slate, like we’re building the band and everything surrounding it up from the ground again. We wanted it to feel like we were playing in a huge expansive digital cave.
“It was filmed in HD in Brighton and then I ran it through a distortion app on my iPhone and basically fucked it up so as individuals we were being divided into three parts every time the music gushes and pours. It’s kind of a visual metaphor for the recording process for the EP in a weird way.”
Talking about their new single, Hall commented “There are two sides to The Divided States of Us – the literal meaning and the metaphorical. Politically I feel like things are almost 50/50 split at the moment, there’s no longer a centre ground, but it’s also about having a divided mental state internally.”
The track is the first to be taken from their brand new EP titled Evolve or Die, set for release on 29th September via Alcopop! Records.
