Communion Presents... Dutch Uncles
Dutch Uncles have unveiled a new video for their single 'Nometo'. For the distinctly Gilliam-esque film, which recalls the golden age of MTV video, the band turned to long term collaborators DR.ME who have been responsible for the band's striking artwork to date.
'Nometo' is one of the more orchestral tracks from recent album Out Of Touch In The Wild, which the band are set to recreate live on a run of very special live shows.
The Manchester 5-piece will augment their live performance with a string ensemble, who they have christened the Out Of Touch In The Wild Light Orchestra. For the first time, the songs from the critically acclaimed Out Of Touch In The Wild LP will be performed true to the studio recordings, yet with the frantic energy from Dutch Uncles' famed live shows still intact. Support will come from Liverpool's Outfit who have just released their well-received debut Performance.
Lead vocalist Duncan Wallis: "These shows seem a logical progression but have always been resolute that they should not be the polite, seated affair that is all too often the case with these things. Hopefully the experience will represent the very best of both worlds, the record but still maintaining the energy of the live show."
Out Of Touch In The Wild was released earlier this year on Memphis Industries and found Dutch Uncles breaking further from their art pop guitar based beginnings by utilising string and mallet instruments heavily throughout.
Tickets for the expanded Dutch Uncles performances that will include the Out Of Touch In The Wild Light Orchestra for November and December will go on sale on Friday at 9am. The shows come in the wake of a hugely successful European tour with Paramore. Before they take the string ensemble on the road with them, they're set to play Festival No. 6 and have a full UK tour booked with Mancunian musical compadres Everything Everything.
