Live Gig Video: Glass Animals perform new single ‘Hazey’ at London Meltdown Festival

It’s Friday, so I thought, why not post something fun and dancey to get you in the mood for the weekend? Oxford’s Glass Animals have released another live video from their exemplary performance at London Meltdown Festival back in June. In August, we posted the film of ‘Black Mambo’ from the night filmed by cinematographer Georgio Testi. This time, it’s of their upcoming single ‘Hazey’, which will be released on the 13th of October, smack dab in the middle of their next UK tour.

Glass Animals are currently in America, finishing up a tour with sold out shows in San Francisco tonight, followed by back to back sold out gigs in Los Angeles over the weekend. Their next UK tour begins next Friday, the 10th of October, at Liverpool Magnet; tickets to the tour are on sale now except for London Oval, which has sold out. The band also announced this week a new UK tour for March 2015, with tickets on sale now. The new tour includes their largest show to date at London Shepherds Bush Empire on Tuesday the 10th of March; the band promises they have “some cool plans for that one.” Quite tempting…

Live Gig Video: Glass Animals perform ‘Black Mambo’ at London Meltdown Festival

Glass Animals were one of the bands chosen to perform at this year’s Meltdown Festival, curated in 2014 by UNKLE‘s James Lavelle. The annual event in London takes place at the Southbank Centre and back in June, the Oxford band’s appearance had the distinction of having the most jungle-y backdrop of their career so far, with indoor lush vegetation to set the mood, along with the usual requisite fog and strobes seen at their shows.

Although they had to cut their set short due to parts of the ceiling coming down in the middle of their set (personally, I suspect the vibrations from the bass line of ‘Toes’ from their debut album ‘Zaba’ to have been the culprit), their performance of ‘Black Mambo’ from the night of 18 June has been committed to video, as shared by American entertainment magazine Entertainment Weekly yesterday. (They’re doing pretty well stateside.) Watch the letterbox-y presentation, filmed by Georgio Testi, below.
