Tankus the Henge, our favourite travelling band of jazzed up carnival rock & roll ne’er-do-wells, release their second album I Crave Affection Baby, But Not When I Drive later this week, and to whet your appetite they’ve worked with Italian animators Trukitrek at Artisti to put together a stunningly beautiful video for new single ‘Things Were Better Before’.
Featuring a puppet of frontman Jaz Delorean exploring a bleak underwater post-apocalyptic Earth in a steam-punk submarine, the tone of the visuals matches the cautionary air and environmental themes of the track, and the clip has already been picking up awards at international film festivals.
I Crave Affection Baby, But Not When I Drive is released on 29th November. The band are currently on tour and play the following UK dates in November and December:
29th – 100 CLUB London UK (Album launch)
30th – THE BEEHIVE Honiton UK
1st – MADNESS HOF WEEKENDER Minehead UK
7th – CHAPEL ARTS Bath UK
8th – MEADOWBROOK Dartington UK
