"When we were over in Oregon recording with Black Francis, Spin magazine asked us to film what we were up to.

We were so quick recording though that by the time they got the camera to us we had finished.

So in the video we made there isn't much going on. Although we did try and recreate some of it. If you want to take a look it is HERE

We actually took the camera to the pub with us but thankfully they edited that out.

There is another documentary about us recording in the studio that Mikey is working on I'll let you know when its finished. I think he is going to call it 'Art Brut VS Salem' [Eddie Argos]

Art Brut's new Frank Black-produced album, Art Brut vs. Satan, will be released on April 20th (Europe on Cooking Vinyl) and May 12th (US on Downtown Records).

In June, Art Brut will visit the United States for a tour that so far includes FIVE NIGHTS IN A ROW at Mercury Lounge in NYC (June 1-5). Tickets to each show cost $16 adv / $18 doors, or you can get one of the "limited number of 5-day passes" for $50 at Ticketmaster when they go on sale Friday at noon.

We already posted the new video for the song "Alcoholics Unanimous". Below is the making of that video, the cover art for the single, and all currently known tour dates...
