Brighton rockers Demob Happy have revealed their new music video for ‘Dead Dreamers’ and you can check it out below.

Speaking of the video, frontman Matt Marcantonio says: “It’s the fruit of a long weekend and three spare puppets to mess with. We grew up watching Jim Henson films like The Dark Crystal, that was our childhood, and it's the sort of idea you conjure up but never think you'll do.

“Then we ended up with these spare puppets and we couldn't afford actors so we got all our friends together and made it over a lost weekend. We just fucked around till we got something good."

The band have been consistently hyped for their live shows over the middle part of this decade in Brighton and in small venues around the UK. Throughout this era of local-acclaim they have always been on the brink of breaking out and becoming a household name for British rock 'n' roll and known up and down the country, but have taken their time to get everything in the right place before making their biggest splash.

With this latest video they may just have made that leap and have no right to look back as they're great and should fear nothing. Make way for Demob Happy - they will be massive.

You can also catch Demob Happy on tour where they play with Gang Of Youths*, and The Cribs**.
