British sample-wizards The Go! Team released a new album, Semicircle, a couple of weeks back via Memphis Industries. Previously they shared its first single, “Semicircle Song,” as well as “Mayday” and “All the Way Live.” Now “Mayday” has a colorful video directed by James Slater. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Slater had this to say about the video in a press release: “Like most of The Go! Team videos I’ve made, it’s a full-on, coffee-fueled collage of mixed media. This one is a collision of stop frame animation, archive flood disaster footage, rotoscoped singers, and a crestfallen girl, who are all framed behind a storm of paper tears.”

Semicircle features two key members of the original live band lineup that toured the band’s acclaimed debut album, 2004’s Thunder, Lightning, Strike. Ian Parton is the main creative force behind the band, but brought back guitarist Sam Dook and rapper Ninja for Semicircle.

The band’s last album was 2015’s The Scene Between, which was essentially an Ian Parton solo project. A previous press release laid out the lineup for Semicircle: “Semicircle finds Parton collaborating with current live players Simone Odaranile (drums) and Angela ‘Maki’ Won-Yin Mak (vocals), as well as two original members, guitarist Sam Dook and rapper Ninja. Annelotte de Graaf (aka Amber Arcades), previous collaborator Julie Margat (aka Lispector), and a crew of unexpected musicians feature throughout.”

Semicircle also features the Detroit Youth Choir. The album comes in various formats, including a limited edition neon pink vinyl LP, a cassette, limited edition signed screen-printed test pressing, CD, and download.
