Following the release of their first new material since 2016 album Songs for Our Mothers, Fat White Family have added the official video to accompany their new song ‘Feet’.
The track is the first release from their forthcoming third album Serfs Up! which will be released on April 19th, their first with record label Domino. We’re told the record has been made with longterm collaborator Liam D May and will feature a collaboration with Baxter Dury.
In a press release from the band, ‘Serfs Up!’ is described as “a lush and masterful work, lascivious and personal. Tropical, sympathetic and monumental, it invites the listener in rather than repel them through wilful abrasion. Fat White Family have broken previous default patterns of behaviour. As such, their third album heralds a new day dawning.”
The band said: “I suppose it was almost exactly two years ago that myself and what was left of this band exiled ourselves to Sheffield in search of yet another renaissance, with only our unshakable dedication to the struggle and a copy of The Commodores ‘Nightshift’ to pull us through,” in a post on social media.
“Most Londoners never have and never will fully understand the true horrors of a northern winter, what that much grey sky can do to the human heart. We baptised ourselves again and again in her bitter drizzle, feeding on the monotony of it all as if it were the nectar of the elect. And by the side of a rotten canal in a room half the size of a public toilet, armed with a limited equipment budget, our wits and time, we once again set upon revealing the true face of God, measuring out his/her/their glorious countenance in rhyme, meter, groove and melody.”
The new video has been directed by southeast London-based filmmaker CC Wad who pushed members of the band to play numerous different role which, ultimately, sees guitarist Saul Adamczewski stabbed to death.
