Leeds outfit Yard Act have shared the video for ‘100% Endurance’, the latest single taken from their debut album “The Overload”.
The track’s release is marked with a brilliant video, directed by James Slater, The largely black and white shot video stars award winning actor David Thewlis, who hails from Blackpool – where the visual was shot.
Thewlis said of the experience: “I’ve told my agent I’m only doing Yard Act videos from now on, though next time on a tropical island or a big yacht.”
Yard Act’s James Smith said the video “stands as testament, once more, to James Slater and his vision for bringing our songs to life every time.”
“It was great shooting this video. I barely had to do anything, and I didn’t have fake facial hair glued to me head for once. I still can’t believe David got involved. I was such a fan of his work from Naked through to Fargo, and when I told James Slater he was interested in working with us, he was so buzzing. A brilliant actor, and an absolute joy to watch work. Equally so, he is a thoroughly decent, down to earth person who is funny as fuck, and that goes a fair way I reckon.”James Smith, Yard Act.
Yard Act have also announced a headline show at London’s O2 Kentish Town Forum on 1 December which is set to be their biggest yet following a sold out tour in February and March of this year.
