Blonde Redhead have released the music video for the title track of their new EP, 3 O’CLOCK (2017, Asa Wa Kuru/Ponderosa). The video was filmed live in Amsterdam at Paradiso Noord on March 10th, 2017, during a stop on their most recent European tour. Directed by Alex Caroppi and filmed by Ortensia Braga, the video captures the unrestrained energy of the live performances that Blonde Redhead has come to be known for.

Blonde Redhead have also announced tours dates for July 2017, including a European festival circuit and a 4-stop tour of the United States West Coast. The European tour sees them performing at BBK Festival in Bilbao (ES), Festival les George in Fribourg (CH) and Dour Festival in Dour (BE), among others. The full list of tour dates is below.


3 O’CLOCK was released March 10th, 2017 on the band’s own label, Asa Wa Kuru Records. This melancholic EP, with an aromantic graft, follows the tour that, in 2016, saw Blonde Redhead reinvent their cult album Misery Is A Butterfly with a string quartet. The new atmospheres developed during this tour emerge occasionally in the pieces of 3 O’CLOCK, as the band pushes even more in the direction of a massive presence of strings and wind instruments such as the viola, cello, violin, clarinet, oboe, flute and trumpet. The EP was made with the help of, among others, the string quartet ACME (American Contemporary Music Ensemble), and Eyvind Kang, an American composer and violinist who collaborated with Blonde Redhead on Misery Is A Butterfly and the latest tour in support of the album
