Scissor Sisters – Let’s Have A Kiki Instructional Video and The 2 Bears Remix

Scissor Sisters have released an instructional video to accompany fan favourite, Let’s Have A Kiki hot on the heels of single release Baby Come Home. The video is self-directed and filmed at the ‘Kiki Institute of Mental Instability’ and was originally debuted on LetsHaveaKiki.com, the band’s Tumblr page dedicated to the Kiki phenomenon.

Scissor Sisters having a Kiki

Since the release of their album Magic Hour, Let’s Have A Kiki has become somewhat an anthem among Scissor Sisters. The band’s choreographed live performance of the track has spurred dance tributes from around the world. To encourage participation, the group decided to produce their own instructional video with sing-a-long lyrics for fans to enjoy.

Not only has a brand new video been produced but the 2 bears have also produced a remix of the anthemic track. The British dance duo made up of Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and Raf Rundell have taken the song to new extremes and turned it into a purely electronic version perfect for those Kiki’s you may want to hold.

Listen to the remix here.

Scissor Sisters ft. Josh Homme Infomercial

With the release date of the Scissor Sisters’ new album Magic Hour being last Monday (May 28), Queen of the Stoneages’ front man, Josh Homme, took it upon himself to release his very own infomercial selling the CD (which you can watch below):

The album release follows the euphoric Calvin Harris-produced single Only The Horses, which hit the charts a couple of weeks ago following Scissor Sisters fantastic live performance on The Voice and two intimate sold out shows at Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

To celebrate the release of the single and album, Scissor Sisters set an interactive Facebook app which allowed fans to preview clips from their record.

Magic Hour is the result of a series of team-ups between Scissor Sisters – Shears, Babydaddy, Ana Matronic, Del Marquis and Randy Real – and a whole host of stellar artists, writers and producers, including Azealia Banks, Calvin Harris, Stuart Price, Pharrell Williams, Diplo and Alex Rihda, the German electronic music producer and DJ behind BoysNoize.

“It was a pretty collaborative effort,” says Jake of Magic Hour, which was recorded in New York and London.“We made it really fast. We had a week in June 2011 when we wrote ‘Only The Horses’ and a couple of other songs that didn’t make the album then we started back at it at the beginning of September.”

They have also released the dates of their UK headline tour. You can catch them live at the following shows throughout October:

1st Dublin Olympia
2nd Belfast Waterfront
15th Portsmouth Guildhall
16th Leeds O2 Academy
19th Glasgow Barrowlands
20th Manchester Apollo
22nd Bristol Colston Hall
23rd London Roundhouse
