After recently announcing news of his upcoming album ‘Love’, which is set for release on May 12th via Sacred Bones, New York based Amen Dunes has unveiled a new video & single from the forthcoming record alongside a string of UK & EU tour dates including support slots for both Mac de Marco & Wooden Shjips.
Originally born out of a collection of songs made in the autumn of 2006 in upstate New York, the intimate sentiment shines through on what were originally personal recordings, not intended for public release.
The video for new single and Far Out’s Track of the Day, Lilac In Hand offers another intimate and warm look into the forthcoming album. The melancholic video, shot on 16mm film in late winter Montreal, was created and directed by experimental filmmaker and Godspeed You! Black Emperor collaborator Karl Lemieux.
