Friends premiere video for ‘Mind Control’ on Vice’s Noisey Youtube channel

| On 16, May 2012

Friends unveil the video for their new single Mind Control today, exclusively on the Noisey YouTube channel.

Shot by Hiro Murai (St. Vincent, Scissor Sisters, Usher), the clip combines band performance, action footage, and special effects, in a rhythmic montage cut to the Paul Epworth mixed track. The band pay reverent homage to dystopian Sci-Fi films from the ‘80s (‘They Live,’ ‘Brainstorm,’ ‘Scanners’).

The single will be released on May 28th 2012 while the debut album ‘Manifest’ will be released on June 4th 2012 via Lucky Number.

Friends will follow their sold out show at London Scala and road-blocked Great Escape appearances with more UK dates in June, including Field Day and Parklife Festivals, a free Rough Trade East In-store and a very special album release show at Dingwalls.
