Liverpool trio Stealing Sheep return next April with their new album Big Wow. Watch the video for first track 'Joking Me' below

Stealing Sheep have announced their new album Big Wows alongside a video for new single ‘Joking Me’ which you can watch above.

The video sees the band captured in 8-bit form while computer pop-ups display lyrics from the track. It’s the first of a series of karaoke-style videos made in collaboration with 8-bit video artist Pastel Castle (Emily Garner) to be released alongside the album - their first since 2015’s ‘Not Real’.

The Merseyside trio explained: “Both the song and the video speak a lot about today’s modern culture and how things seem throwaway: love, communication, revealing the disappointments and let downs but also the ephemeral of the delete, trash, emoji digital world. The way you can put up a front on social media, cultivate an imagined life, your best life.”

‘Big Wows’ is out on April 19, 2019 via Heavenly Recordings.The band have also confirmed a 2019 UK tour, including a date at London’s EartH. You can buy tickets for the tour here.
