Moon Duo reveal their Animal

Moon Duo have launched a video for their track Animal, from upcoming third album Shadow Of The Sun.

It’s set for release on March 2 via Sacred Bones and follows 2012’s Circles.

Founders Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada are joined by drummer John Jeffrey, who first appeared on last year’s Live In Ravenna record.

Johnson says of the video: “We loved pro skater Richie Jackson’s videos – and the idea of a psychedelic skater was something outside of the norm. He had the idea of doing the world’s first skate video without a skateboard, and we were sold right there.”

Moon Duo will play eight UK and Ireland shows as part of a European tour:

Apr 08: Manchester Islington Mill

Apr 09: Brighton Haunt

Apr 28: Bristol Exchange

Apr 29: Leeds Holy Trinity Church

Apr 30: London Village Underground

May 01: Dublin Workmans Club

May 02: Letterkenny Distorted Perspective Festival

May 04: Liverpool Kazimer

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
