New Zealanders The Naked and Famous have a brand new promo out for ‘I Kill Giants’. Sounds pretty aggro, the title, doesn’t it? Oddly, the video looks more like a dance recital at a bat mitzvah than anything else. Watch the video below.

The band heads out on a UK tour starting the 21st of November in Manchester; all the details are here.

You’ve been wondering what New Zealanders The Naked and Famous have been up to, haven’t you? Well wonder no more. They’ve been preparing for the release of sophomore album ‘In Rolling Waves’, out in mid-September on Fiction Records, and presumably, collecting insects for this video for ‘Hearts Like Ours’. If you don’t like bugs, I’m gonna guess you’re not going to like this one very much. On the other hand, if you have only a mild aversion to them (there’s not that many of them, to be fair), you’re probably going to find this promo…an odd collection of images of bodies, but in a good way. Watch the video below.

The Naked and Famous are going on a pretty substantial tour of the UK next month (yeah, tomorrow is November…can you believe it?!?) and we want to celebrate the Kiwis coming over with giving away tickets to three of their shows. If you recall, we gave away tickets to TNAF’s London and Manchester shows a couple week ago, but this time, we’re giving away a pair each of their Birmingham HMV Institute (Saturday 19th November), Cambridge Junction (Sunday 20th November) and Norwich Waterfront (Monday 21st November). Want to win and feel lucky? Then you’ll want to enter…

First, enter your name and email address in the form below, so we have a way to contact you if you win. Second, choose which show you want to win tickets for. Third, tell us the name of the Naked and Famous’s debut album, released in 2010. We’ll choose the winners from all the correct entries. Entries must be received by noon British time on Thursday, 10 November 2011. Good luck!

To buy tickets to the shows not sold out yet, use this Gigs and Tours link.

This contest is now closed and the winners will be contacted by email shortly.

 

WIN / Tix to see Naked and Famous in London -or- Manchester

 
By on Tuesday, 20th September 2011 at 11:00 am
 

A band who hit the ground running in 2011 with gigs and accolades, The Naked and Famous from New Zealand will be touring the UK in November. Want to see them live? Or maybe the question we should be asking is, do you want to see them live…entirely free, on us? We have a pair each to their London Roundhouse (Thursday the 10th of November) and Manchester Academy 2 (Thursday the 17th of November) shows and we want to give them away to two of our lucky readers. Note: the London show has already sold out, so this is your last chance to get into the Roundhouse show (unless you’re willing to hand your money over to a tout, something we here at TGTF definitely do not support).

Want to win? Simply enter your name and email address in the form below, choose which show you want to win tickets for, then tell us what your favourite Naked and Famous song is. We’ll choose the winners from all the completed entries. Entries must be received by Monday the 3rd of October, 5 PM British time. Good luck!

To buy tickets to the shows not sold out yet, use this Gigs and Tours link.

This contest is now closed and the winners will be contacted by email soon.

 

Video of the Moment #560: The Naked and Famous

We realise not everyone is on holiday in a sunny locale or Reading/Leeds this bank holiday weekend. So we’re here to entertain you with some videos…

The Naked and Famous have a new video for ‘The Sun’, from their debut album ‘Passive Me Aggressive You’. Warning: even though you could class it as ‘visual art’, it was banned from YouTube because of its T&A content, so please note, it’s NSFW. But considering it’s Saturday the day we post it, we figure you’re safe. (Unless you have one of those ‘essential’ jobs that require you to work weekends, like security guards. Then we would advise you to wait until you’re home to watch it.)

The Naked and Famous go on tour in the UK in November.
