Live Gig Video: Spector perform ‘Stay High’ in front of fans at the 100 Club and Lexington in London

By on Thursday, 13th August 2015 at 4:00 pm

Spector have announced they’ll be releasing a new single the same day their new album comes out. ‘Stay High’ As described by the band’s frontman Fred MacPherson, ‘Stay High’ “is about keeping yourself distracted while everything around you goes to shit…When all that’s left of your relationship are dates booked on Groupon and your sense of adventure’s dictated by the offers on it’s hard not to want to dislodge yourself from reality permanently.” After witnessing it first-hand for myself and seeing some friends going through a particularly rough patch lately, I can certainly relate.

The promo they’ve filmed for it is culled footage from the band’s shows in London in March at the Lexington and at the 100 Club in April, and the claustrophobic manner in which the footage was filmed makes it feel like you’re right there in the thick of it. You know, when those overly excited fans accidentally push you while they’re dancing, or that annoying git waves his arm in front of your face, obscuring your view for half the show in his overzealousness to connect with the band. Oh yes, live gigs, gotta love them.

‘Moth Boys’, their new album, will be released on Fiction Records on the 21st of August, alongside the ‘Stay High’ single. Catch Spector live on their previously announced October 2015 UK tour, and this month during their series of in-stores and signings (appearances listed below the video).
