The New Pornographers ‘Dancehall Domine’ Video

The New Pornographers

misc
The New Pornographers are out with the music video to their new single ‘Dancehall Domine’. ‘Dancehall Domine’ is from the band’s new album ‘Brill Bruisers’, which is out now on Matador Records. The record is the highest charting album in the band’s career.

Of the video, made by Leblanc + Cudmore, Scott Cudmore states, “Sometimes I like watching the b-roll or behind the scenes or outtakes on DVDs and blu-rays… ‘Dancehall Domine’ is meant to feel like a whole bunch of those clips sort of strung together as if they’re taken from some fu**ed up Italian or French musical maybe. Or a bunch of fragments from films like that-thrillers, bad romances, in one case we’re clearly referencing Clouzot’s famous L’enfer tests. We even have the man himself in there!”

Paradise Lost Fourteenth Album Due April 2015

Paradise Lost 2014

After taking a trip back in time with the ‘Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities)’ album and the last studio album ‘Tragic Idol’ (2012), the band is set to release their fourteenth studio album via Century Media Records in late April 2015.

The band is about to begin the recording sessions for the release with Jaimie Gomez Arellano from Orgone Studios in London. Band frontman Nick Holmes said regarding the project, “We wanted to approach the new album differently this time, by embracing the band’s VERY early days with the last few years. We have written a very dark yet melodic album, but this time many songs definitely have a death metal edge, which is something we haven’t done for a long, long time in Paradise Lost.”
