Mystery Jets are out with the music video to their new single ‘Serotonin’, off the English indie rock group’s fourth album ‘Serotonin’, out now on Rough Trade. Watch the Paul Routledge and Rhys Jones directed video via YouTube below.
William Rees of Mystery Jets checked in with fans on the British indie rock group’s blog at MySpace (@mysteryjets) on Thursday (December 25). Rees writes:
A little note to say thanks ever so much to all the people that made it to our gigs and made 2008 such a good year for us. We’ve seen so much of the world, met so many good people and got up to so much mischief and fun playing our songs to everyone. It’s hard to put everything into a sensical perspective, I’m sat at home right now trying to place it all in order in my head, and I’m frequently exclaiming out loud “fu** that actually happened” and thats all because so much HAS happened this year, but its been an incredible one, and full of excitement and intrigue. I’d like to say sorry on Blaine’s behalf for the festivals we had to cancel towards the end of the summer, as you may know Blaine had a few troubles with his health…. he is a lot better now, and is resting up on an island somewhere (not eel pie). My favorite moments this year have got to be Glastonbury, if you were there you’d know what I mean… the weather was glorious, the fields were teeming with the most colorful people I’ve ever seen, and our 40 minutes on the park stage were easily the best consecutive cluster of minutes I think I’ve had.
So, alas, any more, anything else……? Yes there’s lots else to talk of, mention, shout about, etc, but… I’d probably bore you and more importantly my mum and dad have started tucking into the Christmas pudding and i wouldn’t want to miss that.
Have a wonderful, merry Christmas where ever you lot are… and hopefully see you next year.
(did anyone get any decent presents? The best ones I got I bought for myself,
1. The new Kings of Leon album, half price in Morrisons.
2. A set of water colors… everyone needs a hobby.
3. A toothbrush. Long overdue, any one who was within spitting distance from me this year will agree. ((Kai calls me the “Black tooth” and suggests I get myself down to the auditions for the new Pirates of the Caribbean))
Lots of love, young, old and middle aged… AND album number three is simmering away, we got new songs to show.
Mystery Jets frontman Blaine Harrison checked in with fans on the British indie rock group’s MySpace page, offering an update on his hospitilization due to Spina Bifida complications. Blaine writes:
As you may very well have noticed by now, we recently announced the cancellation of our appearances at several UK and European festivals due to illness. I wanted to make the point that there are genuine reasons for us deciding to do so, and also that these were all dates which we had been looking very forward to playing for some time.
I am sat in hospital writing this from my bed, which is where I have been for the past 7 days, and indeed will probably be for seven or so more. The food is rotten and my neighboring inpatient frequently soils his sheets, but I guess things could be worse. The reason I am here is due to pressure sores on my feet, which are common among people who suffer from my disability. They come and go. But having pretty much caned it since we stared touring the record at the beginning of march, my body finally gave in on our recent trip to play at the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, where I came off stage and felt the most horrendous fever take over my body. one 15-hour flight later and I came off the plane and straight to A&E where the doctor (a stern Polish madam) put me straight on a ward, and advised, to my horror, that I kiss goodbye to any plans I had for the coming 2 or 3 weeks.
The full post at MySpace has since been removed.
