The Districts have announced their new album, Popular Manipulations, out August 11th on Fat Possum.
Along with the announcement the band are sharing the official video for their new single, ‘Ordinary Day’, directed by Colin Kerrigan.
In the ‘Ordinary Day’ video a masked figure walks through the streets of Philadelphia adding an eerie mood to the band’s emotive first single. Shots of the band performing in all black are spliced in affirming the dark undertones of the track.
The track builds and builds until the apex when a series of masked figures are revealed. Eventually the masked protagonist joins the band onstage for the song’s finale. There’s sadness to the affair but you can’t help but hear the hope in Robby’s voice.
The Districts will tour throughout the coming year in support of Popular Manipulations including dates with My Morning Jacket. They’ll make stops at Lollapalooza, Osheaga, Reading and Leeds Festivals, and more. A full list of dates is below.
