London-based indie-rock quartet The Boxer Rebellion are pleased to announce their headline UK and EIRE tour dates, beginning on February 3 in Southampton, and ending on February 16 in Norwich. This marks the first time the band have toured the UK since their last run 2 years ago.
The Boxer Rebellion took to their London rehearsal space and transformed it into a recording studio where the songs for Promises would eventually come together over the span of 18 months. Moving away from the more analog and darker soundscapes that enveloped the band's previous album, Promises is a significant step in a different direction for the band - a hi-fi, soaring piece of work that truly delivers on their epic, signature sound, and individual skill as musicians.
From the retro-glossiness of the album's opener, "Diamonds," to the wall-of-sound that is "Fragile," to the towering beauty of "Low," "New York" and "Dream,' Promises presents itself as an evolution in aesthetic - diverse in soundscapes but singular in grand ambition - for a band that continues to push and explore its creative ability with each new release.
The Boxer Rebellion recently released the music video for their new single 'Keep Moving.' Taken from their current album, Promises, the visually stunning music video for 'Keep Moving' was directed by award-winning directors Rob+Rob and it follows a young girl trapped in a world that's lost the ability to communicate.
Promises is The Boxer Rebellion's uplifting and cinematic follow-up to their previous album The Cold Still and was produced in conjunction with notable producer Billy Bush in Los Angeles in early 2013. Watch the video for 'Keep Moving' below.
