Destroyer shares the first song and video, ‘Tintoretto, It’s for You’, which is taken from the forthcoming new album “LABYRINTHITIS”.
Dan Bejar plays a significant role in creating the visuals for the video by stating; “I had an idea of writing a couple lines on the idea of ‘mystery’ and ‘going nowhere,’ as they are two of my favorite themes. That and the Grim Reaper and being pursued by some silent, unnamable thing that constantly lurks one foot to the left of you. Especially as the world’s decay becomes increasingly less abstract. Also wanted to write on the romance of terror. The song ‘Tintoretto, It’s for You’ speaks to all these things, oddly enough so does the video…”
Video director David Galloway said of the visual: “It hopefully presents some loose giallo vibes despite the fact that it clearly isn’t a giallo at all. Nobody dies, nothing is explored at length, and it’s ultimately a collection of neighbourhood red herrings. All leads that go nowhere. But that’s the mystery. That’s the mystery about music videos.”
In support of “LABYRINTHITIS”, the Destroyer band heads out on a tour of North America this spring. And don’t forget that Bejar recently released a documentary of the previous tour for 2020’s Have We Met.
“LABYRINTHITIS” is out on 25 March via Bella Union.
