To mark the release of their debut album, out today, 2:54 unveil the video for their forthcoming single ‘Creeping’, with the 7in released on June 18th via Fiction. The video, directed by talented Scandinavian duo Frode & Marcus, ‘Creeping’s malevolent melodies are perfectly complimented by the eerie waterscape and desolate countryside of this stunning music video. The single was realized in union by the one and only Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails, Jesus & The Mary Chain, etc), and is a defining moment for the band. Not only the first ever fully realized 2:54 song (early demos appearing on blogs in 2010), but the only track on the album both produced and mixed solely by Moulder himself. To celebrate the release of their debut long player, ‘2:54’, the band will play a special free set at London’s Rough Trade East store this Thursday May 31st (on stage at 7.30pm), ahead of their headline show at London’s Scala venue next Thursday, June 7th, joined by a stellar supporting line-up of both Gross Magic and Echo Lake. They then embark on an epic month-long voyage across the US, taking in 15 cities with Widowspeak supporting them. The band were main support for the XX’s eagerly anticipated comeback shows a week ago, so these forthcoming dates have the band primed for some truly fantastic shows.
