Francis of Delirium are back with a new song, ‘Come Out and Play’, which arrives alongside a self-animated video. The track was mixed by Jolyon Thomas (Royal Blood, Slaves) and mastered by Joe Lambert (Sharon Van Etten, Deerhunter). Check it out below.
““I kept thinking about clowns when making this song, I watched Felini’s 8 ½ and the closing scene where a procession of clowns play in a band stuck with me,” Jana Bahrich explained in a statement. “I had them in my mind for months, thinking about the way they hid behind painted faces, keeping so much hidden from the audience, and also just how sad they seemed. I wanted this song to feel dark and to have an eeriness that would make sense in the background of some weird art movie about funhouses and carnivals.”
‘Come Out and Play’ follows the release of Francis of Delirium’s second EP, Wading. The band are set to embark on a UK headline tour this October. Find the full list of dates below.
