Last Dinosaurs reveal the video for their latest single ‘Apollo’, from their hotly anticipated second album ‘Wellness’ to be released August 28, via Dew Process /UMA.
A lone security guard brings his A-game and busts some incredible yet hysterical dance moves, passing the time of a lonely late night graveyard shift at a deserted Brisbane shopping mall. Bass player Michael Sloane who directed the video says of the clip, “The concept came from the band wanting to portray the message of the song’s lyrics, ideas of leading a double life, wanting something more, and transitioning from ordinary to extraordinary. Even though the lyrics are serious, the upbeat music called for something fun on screen. I really have our dancer/actor Sheru Bharadwaja to thank for bringing groove, humour, and sincerity to his role as the security guard with a secret.”
Fresh from their sold-out national ‘Evie’ tour and blistering set at Splendour In The Grass, which saw the band play to a packed out crowd at the Amphitheatre stage, the Brisbane indie guitar-pop four piece are gearing up to hit the road for their triple j supported national ‘Wellness’ album tour. The tour will see the band travel across six states to headline some of the biggest venues of their career to date, including all ages as well as under 18’s shows which co-inside with upcoming September school holidays. The ‘Wellness’ 2015 Australian Tour begins September 25, with special guests to be announced. Dates are below, tickets selling fast.
