It's only mid-day and we're drunk - with the sound of New Bums! Coincidentally, they're drunk, too! Not only that, but while we prefer to lie hidden within the shadows of our intoxication, New Bums revel in the opportunity to expose themselves to any voyeur looking for a thrill. Hence, a new video! Cosy up with Messrs. Chasny and Quinn as they deliver "The Killers and Me," a noir-ish expedition into the New Bums' nightlife. Is it a party, or a crime scene? Some mysteries are better left unsolved, and such is the case with "The Killers and Me." While on the topic of voyeurism, and party crimes, for that matter, it's also a good time to announce that New Bums are touring the USA beginning in March! Oh what tidings of acousta-tension we bring ye, early 2014! Having thus far toured on the pretty low down (excluding being totally experienced in the art of touring with their external endeavors in Six Organs and Skygreen Leopards), this is their first full-on banger as New Bums with debut LP in tote, a voyage we'd like to think of as maiden. Check the dates after you devour the eye candy provided by the video for "The Killers and Me," locate your city, and mark your calendars. If your area feels under-represented, stay tuned for more dates, 'cause they're coming! Oh say, while you're just sitting there waiting, pre-order New Bums' Voices In A Rented RoomNOW!
