Having toured extensively since releasing his album Love earlier this year via Sacred Bones, Amen Dunes shares the new video for album standout track, Splits Are Parted.
Amen Dunes is set to embark on a run of EU tour dates this autumn which includes a show at the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia on September 26.
In the words of Amen Dunes himself, aka, Damon McMahon Splits Are Parted is: “…a song about always leaving and always looking back”.
Director Jesse Hlebo then went on to quote Jean Luc Nancy commenting on the thoughts behind the video when he said: “There is no other meaning than the meaning of circulation. But this circulation goes in all directions at once…”
After recently announcing news of his upcoming album Love, which is set for release on May 12 via Sacred Bones, New York-based Amen Dunes has unveiled a new video and single from the forthcoming record alongside a string of UK and EU tour dates including support slots for both Mac de Marco and Wooden Shjips.
Amen Dunes is also set to play at the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia, OFF, Way Out West and Jabberwocky Festival on a full EU run this autumn, in addition to the handful of shows in May and June.
The video for new single 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 film-maker and Godspeed You! Black Emperor collaborator, Karl Lemieux.
