Vivian Girls have shared a video for “Something To Do,” the latest from their new album, Memory, their first in eight years, out September 20 via Polyvinyl. The video was directed by Jason Lester.
Last month, Vivian Girls announced their reunion with the release of Memory‘s lead single, “Sick.“Memory is an album filled with personal reflections on toxic relationships, the false promise of new love, mental health struggles, and finding ways to accept oneself amidst it all. Fittingly, the sonic textures of the album match this sense of desperation and longing. It’s a loud, snarling journey, and there’s a sense of streamlined direction and intensity to the performances: it sounds like a band returning to a core idea of itself.
In celebration of Memory, the band have also announced a fall tour that includes shows on the East Coast, West Coast, and in the midwest, as well as reissues of their acclaimed first two albums, Vivian Girls (2008) and Everything Goes Wrong (2009). Originally released by In the Red, these classic records have been tragically out-of-print for many years, but are both now available for the first time on 180-Gram colored vinyl. Vivian Girls has also been re-mastered by Heba Kadry at Timeless Mastering.
Memory and both of the re-issues are available for pre-order now and out on 9/20.
