'Ducter' features on the band's debut album which is out today

black midi have shared a video for the track 'Ducter' which features on their debut album, Schlagenheim. You can watch the visual above.

The video is directed by Anthrox Studio, who were formally virtual designers with Rockstar Games and responsible for working on games such as Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto V. It also features animation from Isam Prado.

"After meeting with the band and discussing some broad concepts they had in mind, we could immediately tell this would be a dream project," said Anthony Macbain and Roxie Vizcarra of Anthrox Studio. "Using a few of the bands' influences as a springboard, we were given total creative freedom with which to make something we believed both complemented the band's aesthetic and told the story we wanted to tell. From the very beginning, everything seemed to come together organically, and the result is something we feel is enigmatic and unique."

Schlagenheim is out now via Rough Trade. The band have lined up an extensive series of UK and European tour dates and have just confirmed a show at London's fabric on October 23.
