Boston Manor Reveal New Music Video for “Bad Machine”
Boston Manor have revealed their second single, “Bad Machine” off their upcoming full-length sophomore album, “Welcome to the Neighbourhood”. The music video, directed and edited by the band’s very own Henry Cox, with Tom Hancox in the role of DOP, is a stylized “film noir” look of the their hometown of Blackpool.
Produced by Mike Sapone (Taking Back Sunday, Mayday Parade, Public Enemy), ‘Welcome To The Neighbourhood’ is a soundtrack to disenfranchisement set in a fictionalized version of the band’s hometown. The world that ‘Welcome To The Neighbourhood’ inhabits is an unapologetically bleak one, a world rife with poverty and drug addiction, boarded up shops and a population unable to escape a predicament they didn’t even know they were in.
‘Welcome To The Neighbourhood’ is set for release via Pure Noise Records on September 7th, 2018. The band have also announced their biggest headline tour to date which will see them traverse the UK & Europe through September and October, including a date at London’s iconic Electric Ballroom on September 22nd. On top of the headliner, Boston Manor will be playing a number of special one off shows around the record’s release. See below for further details.
