The Irish duo have announced tour dates for their winter 2021 tour of Ireland and the UK.
The Lost Brothers have released a new music video for their third single, 'After The Rain,' and announced their upcoming tour.
Comprised of members Oisin Leech and Mark McCausland, The Lost Brothers released their sixth studio album, After The Fire After The Rain in 2020 before lockdown but were unable to tour with it. Now, they plan to perform throughout Ireland and the UK this winter.
In celebration of their upcoming tour, they've released the music video for 'After The Rain.' The track features guitarist M Ward and bassist Tony Garnier, and the music video was created in collaboration with Gavin Wood.
"There were a few obstacles when I was creating this video," explained Wood. "With lockdowns and restrictions changing all the time. I decided to try and find landscapes and worlds in the microscopic. Things started to look like scenes from another planet. So I decided to take it a step further and went with the theme of 'hallucinations of a dancing alien - with bubbles for a head.'"
The track itself is sonically inspired by Billie Holliday, Rory Gallagher, and The Beta Band.
“This song is a travelogue and tries to express the process a songwriter can go through sometimes," said the band. "We tried to leave as much space as we could between the notes so as to capture a certain feeling. There’s always doubt and vulnerability when recording a new tune and this take was the band learning the song in the studio while the tape was rolling."
They will embark on their 2021 winter tour in November, starting in Letterkenny on November 11 before touring through Ireland and the UK. The tour includes their sold-out show at Dublin's Vicar Street on December 2 with Steve Wickham. Other special guests – including Niamh Regan, Lorraine Nash, Donal Lunny, and Paddy Glackin – will also join the Lost Brothers on select tour dates.
The band said they "cannot wait to finally tour this release."
