Public Service Broadcasting have released a new video for their track Turn No More.

The song appears on their latest album Every Valley and features lead vocals from Manic Street Preachers frontman James Dean Bradfield.

The concept album focuses on the decline of the UK coal industry and in particular how it has affected the Welsh mining community

Public Service Broadcasting’s J. Willgoose Esq says: “I wanted the track to have a restrained, plaintive, defiant but still angry feel, and working with James’ voice and the source material was a bit part of that, especially layering the voices towards the end.

“At its heart it’s a song about the people living with the aftermath – both environmental and personal – of the desolation caused both by the practices of an industry and its subsequent collapse.”

The black and white video was directed by Glashier, who has previously worked with artists including Chrissy Hynde and Juliette Lewis.

Glashier explains: “This video was always going to be about the approach, portraying it right, making sure we respected the location and place, how we were portraying Ebbw Vale, why we were shooting there, what we were showing.”

Public Service Broadcasting will head out on tour across the UK in October. Find a full list of tour dates below.
