The video is a bit fleshy and there are perhaps some mildly NSFW moments in the video for The Twilight Sad’s new single, “I Became a Prostitue” from the Scottish band’s upcoming album, Forget the Night Ahead, due in stores sometime this fall. There are conflicting reports about the release date – though it’s looking like sometime late September or early October.
I was turned onto these guys a few years ago, just prior to attending SXSW where I had the opportunity to have my ear drums pounded by them … twice. Their 2007 release, Fourteen Autumns and Fifteen Winters, was my third favorite release of that year and I described it as sounding like Snow Patrol “if Snow Patrol had started just a few years ago and was influenced by Mogwai, Aereogramme, My Bloody Valentine, and Dinosaur Jr.”
You can currently stream “I Became a Prostitute” and the b-side, “In the Blackout”, on the FatCat Records site.
Some U.S. tour dates (with Frightened Rabbit and We Were Promised Jetpacks) were released this week. If you don’t see a city near you, I’ve been informed that there are other Twilight Sad dates being worked on for October so stay tuned.
