Shvpes have released a video for their brand new single Afterlife.

The track has been taken from the UK outfit’s upcoming second album Greater Than, which will launch on November 9 via Search And Destroy/Spinefarm Records.

The video shows vocalist Griffin Dickinson, bassist Grant Leo Knight, drummer Harry Jennings, guitarist Youssef Ashraf and guitarist and vocalist Ryan Hamilton head out on a BMX adventure while being pursued by an unsettling cop who tries to ensnare them in a dilapidated building in the woods.

Shvpes are about to head out on tour with Hawthorne Heights across the UK and Ireland, with those dates followed by November shows with Bullet For My Valentine and Of Mice & Men. They’ll then close out the year with five headline shows.
