Video for title track of forthcoming new album ahead of UK shows tonight and tomorrow

Following the departure of former frontman Tim Smith last November, Texan rock crew Midlake are gearing up to release their new album, Antiphon, out on Bella Union on November 4. Guitarist Eric Pulido has stepped up to fill Smith's shoes, and we've got a taste of the new material, with the Georgia Hudson-directed video for the record's title track - have a watch above.

Says Pulido of the new album: “It’s always through the scope of Midlake, but on Antiphon we wanted to embrace the psychedelia, style and nuance you might hear in bands from yesteryear while also being aware of musical influences leading up to and present now. The result was less folk and more rock. Less nostalgic and more progressive. Now the sky’s the limit."

Head over to Bella Union's website to pre-order the album, and take a look at the two shows the band will be playing in the UK this week:

Tue 22 - Glee Club, Nottingham
Wed 23 - Islington Assembly Hall, London
