Toothless is off on tour next year

There's a new video for 'Sisyphus' too.
Toothless has announced a brand new tour for next year.

The run kicks off in late February in Glasgow, calling off in Manchester, London, Nottingham, Leeds and Brighton before finishing up in Brighton on 5th March.

The news comes alongside a video for latest track ‘Sisyphus’, taken from debut album ‘The Pace of the Passing’, set for release through Island Records on 27th January.

peaking of the video, director Kit Monteith (who made the video with Joseph & Joseph) explained: “In Greek Mythology, King Sisyphus was doomed to lift the same boulder up and down a hill for eternity. So for Sisyphus, we decided a video made from looping animated GIFs would be our modern translation.

“We imagined the often upbeat and happy people inside GIFs as prisoners, forced to repeat the same sunny smile or hammy performance forever with a growing sense of madness. As such, rather than loop the footage in Sisyphus, each clip is a separately filmed attempt to recreate the exact same move with a little more crazy each time.

“Asking our cast to torturously repeat the same moves was pretty intense. Pawel must have done over a hundred squats and apparently couldn’t walk for a few days, Olga munched her way through half a Krispy Kreme factory (she also happens to abhor doughnuts, so we felt pretty bad about that one), and Ed probably hates us for the 12 warm beers we gave him.”

Check out the video, and the forthcoming live dates, below.
