Dead Letter Circus have launched a video for their track The Burning Number.

It’s taken from the Australian outfit’s third album Aesthesis which was released in April this year via Rodeostar Records.

Singer Kim Benzie says of the video: “We got our Scorsese on during the Aesthesis tour throughout Australia and the US earlier in the year to try and document the incredible vibe at the shows.

“When it came time for a clip for our new single The Burning Number, it just felt right that it be this footage and include the faces of all the amazing people in the crowd who make this the experience it is for us.”

The single launch comes just days before Benzie, bassist Stewart Hill, drummer Luke Williams and guitarists Clint Vincent and Luke Palmer head out on tour.

Following an extensive run of dates in their homeland, Dead Letter Circus return to Europe next month and play shows in the UK in October.

Benzie said: “After touring the Aesthesis album through Australia, New Zealand and the US, we’re beyond pumped to finally be bringing our new album and tour to the UK in October.”

Special guests on all five British dates will be Disperse.
