Band post 'I'd Rather Be Dead (Than Be With You)' video online, ahead of third album's release

Glasvegas have just posted the video for their new single 'I'd Rather Be Dead (Than Be With You)' on their website - have a watch above.

There's less of the resonating, Jesus And Mary Chain-esque drum-thumps of their early material, instead a skeletal, arpeggiating piano line and James Allan's familiar vaulting vocals - says the singer of the track: "[it's about] fury... rejection... when the world tries to steal some role in your life you need to guard it like a tornado".

It's out on April 22 via the band's own Go Wow Records label, but will be preceded by an exclusive 7" release for Record Store Day on April 20, backed with the title track of their album Later… When The TV Turns To Static, set to follow later this year.
