North Shields musician Sam Fender has released a brilliant new video for his recent B-side ‘Howdon Aldi Deat Queue’. The raucous new track, clocks in at under two minutes and arrived in July to accompany Fender’s comeback single ‘Seventeen Going Under’, the first glimpse of his second album of the same name. His sophomore outing is due to be released on October 8th.
Dropped last night (August 11th), the video for the rowdy B-side show Fender and band playing in the alcohol section of a local supermarket as disorderly events happen around them. The video even boasts a cameo from the North East’s finest actor/angler, Robson Green. Fender is a huge fan of Green’s show Extreme Fishing.
Fender told the NME: “We recorded this two-minute punk monster of a track in one take. It was basically a joke that went too far, but I’m so glad it did”.
He continued: “The video features legends Robson Green and Tom Brittney who we had been out fishing with on the day it was filmed. We had an absolute riot causing carnage in that supermarket!” Fender’s new release has been touted by many as an example of him leading the return of the B-side, which has long been dead following the advent of music streaming services.
In other news, Fender recently rescheduled his UK tour. It is due to being today on August 12th at Bristol’s O2 Academy. He will then grace the stage in Birmingham, Glasgow, Leicester, Manchester and London to name but a few.
