NEW ALBUM THINGS ARE GREAT OUT JANUARY 21ST
ON TOUR NOW!
Last month Band of Horses announced their sixth studio album and first record in more than five years Things Are Great, which will be released January 21, 2022 via BMG. The band are now sharing the cat-tastic video for their single “Crutch.” The video, directed by Ben Fee, marks the band’s second collaboration with Fee who also directed the video for 2016’s “Casual Party.” The peculiar imagery in the “Crutch” video, juxtaposed to the song’s bittersweet undertones is perfectly Band of Horses. Director Ben Fee says, “What’s fun/sweet/wonderful enough to complement Band of Horses? Kittens with the band’s faces crudely comped onto them, of course. For this project, I wanted to keep the feelings and execution simple and solely positive (and strange). The band walk such a lovely line of sincere, clever, endearing, and funny, and I wanted to echo those qualities in this abstract manner. I mean, it’s cats n’ dolls with the dudes’ faces on them!” The video for “Crutch” was shot at Cat Therapy in Santa Barbara — a cat cafe who fosters, socializes and rehome rescued cats.
Sonically, Things Are Great, is a return to their earlier work and the kind of raw ethos that lies at the heart of Band of Horses
With extensive touring in the UK and Europe in 2022, next year is already shaping up to be a massive year for one of America’s most beloved bands. All details can be found below.
