new Handsome Furs NSFW video, updated tour dates

Handsome Furs

Handsome Furs have released a new and NSFW video for “What About Us”, the sixth track on their spankin’ new LP Sound Kapital. Stereogum talked to the video’s director Scott Coffey who explained how “the video ties into Sound Kapital‘s [NWFW] cover art?…

“I conceived the cover photograph. With the exception of the wonderful Chinese water park shots, the photo art was conceived by me during our video shoot — the cover shot, the back cover of the Furs in the car with the creeping hand, the freeway and night shots where all taken as I made the video. Alexi and Dan chose that great shot of the naked woman on the car for the cover, but I didn’t now that was going to be the cover when I shot it. I liked the idea of the album art and video being integrated. I like the idea of a unified vibe and theme for the album art and video. Sort of like the modern version of a 1970’s concept album.”

Check that the video below.

Handsome Furs hit Webster Hall on August 18th as part of a larger US/EU tour that kicks off next week and ends in middle October. Tickets are still available for the NYC show, and all tour dates are below under the new video…
