Saint Agnes are today (14 March) sharing the visuals for their single ‘Welcome To Silvertown’, exclusively on Gigwise. 

Growling through the three minutes on top of a menacing bassline, the striking visuals depict the band’s desire to escape the mundanities of every day life. The title is shared with their self-produced debut album, due for release on 3 May via Death Or Glory Gang Records and comes ahead of some prestigious appearances over festival season. Watch the video below:

Speaking about the video, Saint Agnes say, “Silvertown is both the name of where the band began, from Kitty’s flat there, as well as the name for the fictional place where the stories we tell on the album take place. The songs are a collection of stories from our reality but dramatised through an exaggerated lens; people we met became gods or devils, gunslinging heroes and villains in the songs. The characters we portray in the video are exaggerations of our true selves. Welcome to Silvertown, drive like hell.” 

The distinct new visuals also come alongside the announcement of a headline tour of the UK in October. The band will start at Manchester’s Jimmy’s before ending up at Record Junkee in Sheffield, with a stop at London’s Dingwalls on the way.
