Honeyblood Release Video, New Dates

Honeyblood Release Album Today, Premiere their Video for the singl "Super rat" & Announce World Tour Dates, starting off July 24th in New York City

Glasgow two-piece Honeyblood have premiered the eye-catching video for lead single “Super Rat,” along with the release of their  debut self-titled album.

The video, directed by Camille Bennett, sees the duo “exploding romantic tropes” according to the director, creating a stylish and memorable accompaniment to the air-punching anthem of seismic proportions. The band will return to the US for another run of shows at the end of the month. The duo toured recently with close comrade Courtney Barnett on her recent sell-out tour, as well as stints with both Real Estate and Angel Olsen.

Honeyblood’s self-titled record was recorded at legendary producer Peter Katis’ Tarquin Studios (The National, Interpol) in ten days last November.

Honeyblood are Shona McVicar on drums and Stina Tweeddale vocals / guitar. Honeyblood pulls in elements of lo-fi punk-rock and unfettered indie-pop and reveals a deep-seated passion for more classic rootsy song-craft.

The band started from humble DIY beginnings, organizing their own guerrilla show at The Old Hairdressers in Glasgow to commemorate the release of a raucous two-track cassette entitled “Thrift Shop.” Honeyblood quickly ingrained themselves into the bustling Glaswegian scene, fast becoming one of its most talked-about names and going on to support everyone from Palma Violets to Sleigh Bells. With their full-length debut ready to go, 2014 will be a busy year for the duo.
