The Twilight Sad utilise super 8 film reels and a 1920s swimming pool for their new 'Shooting Dennis Hopper Shooting' video

The Twilight Sad have shared a new video, and announced a few UK shows.

The band’s new clip is for ‘Shooting Dennis Hopper Shooting’, a track from their recent album ‘IT WON/T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME’, released in January.

Speaking of the video, the band's Brendan Jay Smith says: “I found an old leather bag at the back of my Grandfather’s cupboard with a collection of super 8 film reels from the late 60s.

“When I thought about connecting this with the glitched layers from DLT’s album artwork it felt like we could continue the record's themes of distorted and fractured memories, whilst combining old and new formats and blurring the lines between these mediums.

“Filming in an old abandoned swimming pool from the 1920s gave us an opportunity to reflect on past memories, drawing from my Grandfathers original footage but projecting them in the present in an altered state, by using contemporary methods."

The band will perform their biggest ever UK headline show at The Forum in London on 23rd November, followed by a night at Ritz in Manchester on the 24th.
