Australian psych-rockers POND released a new album, Tasmania, back in March via Interscope. Now they have shared a video for the album’s “The Boys Are Killing Me.” It was shot during the band’s recent tour of Europe and the UK. Jay Watson and the rest of Pond are credited with filming it and Jamie Terry edited the video with the band. It appears to have been shot on Super 8 film stock. Watch it below. Also below are the band’s upcoming tour dates, including a handful of newly announced U.S. dates.

Tasmania is the follow-up to 2017’s The Weather. It features two songs the band shared last year: “Sixteen Days” and “Burnt Out Star” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), as well as “Daisy” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week). In March the band stopped by Australia’s Triple J radio station to take part in their Like a Version covers series, covering Madonna’s “Ray of Light.”

POND is Nicholas Allbrook, Jay Watson, Shiny Joe Ryan, Jamie Terry and Jamie Ireland. As with The Weather, Tasmania was produced by Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker. POND frontman Allbrook used to play bass in Tame Impala and the two bands have often shared members, including Parker. Jesse Taylor Smith directed the “Daisy” video, which was shot on Kulin and Nyoongar Nations lands in Australia.
