These New Puritans – We Want War

Holy smoke, this video is A-mazing!!!

We Want War is the bombastic, epic (read seven minute) new single from These New Puritans’ forthcoming brilliant new album Hidden, out January 15.

Crazy video, crazy song and played LOUD, it’s like some indie industrial orchestral aural attack with BIG DRUMS and BIG SWORDS! Yes peeps, BIG FREAKING DRUMS – six foot to be exact – and BIG FREAKING SWORDS. The video was directed by Sydney-based motion-ographer Daniel Askill.

We Want War is a great intro to the sound of new album which is more broodier and steelier and interesting and experimental than we last heard with Beat Pyramid – which was, that’s right, Triple J Album Of The Week!

This band REALLY push the boundaries while still keeping this listenable and this album is super impressive.
