England’s Fat White Family are releasing a new album, Serfs Up!, tomorrow (April 19) via Domino, their first for the label (and third album overall). Now they have shared another song from the album, “When I Leave,” via a strange video for the track. Fiona Godivier directed the clip, which features a weird parade through a forest. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

The band issued this statement about the video: “Here’s the 3rd tune from Serfs Up! (which is out Friday) it’s called ‘When I Leave.’ Video directed by the wonderfully talented, tolerant and visionary Fiona Godivier. A massive thank you to Ben Edge for his art direction/pagan wisdom and to everyone else that made it down to the woods and froze their arses off all day in order to make this masterpiece possible, the ones who looked like they’d been snorting cue chalk all weekend especially…deep method.”

When the album was announced, Fat White Family shared the string-backed “Feet,” which was our #1 Song of the Week. Then they shared another new track, “Tastes Good With the Money,” via a crazy and bloody video directed by fellow musician Róisín Murphy that had a bit of a Monty Python vibe to it. The song features Baxter Dury, who also appeared in the video. “Tastes Good With the Money” was also one of our Songs of the Week.

Serfs Up is the follow-up to 2016’s Songs For Our Mothers and was recorded in Sheffield, England.

If you live in London, tomorrow (Friday, April 19), the band are having an all afternoon album release event they are calling “Flotsam and Jetsam.” It will take place from 12 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. UK time at 91 Peckham High Street, London, SE15 5RS.

Here’s how the band describe the event in a press release: “We present a one off pop up boutique EXPERIENCE in the heart of thriving and regenerative Peckham, a place we once proudly called home. Don’t miss out on our yummylicious cupcakes, bric a brac, political lectures, antiques EXPERIENCES, lectures, quasi-poetical immersive EXPERIENCES, commercial openings, music and so much more…
