Video: Allah-Las - 'Sacred Sands'

Allah-Las have unveiled their new video for the track 'Sacred Sands' – watch it above.

The California rockers, who count Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie as a fan, released their self-titled debut album last November. The footage from the video was all shot on their European dates last year.

The four-piece met at Hollywood's Amoeba Records shop, where they worked at the time. "We wanted to make the kind of music we weren't hearing being made by contemporary bands, free of digital effects and synthesised sounds, groovy and danceable in a way that wasn't aggressive," singer and guitarist Miles Michaud explained. The album was recorded to analogue tape using old microphones in The Distillery, a small studio south of LA which was "lined floor to ceiling with old jukeboxes, fans, record amplifiers, church organs and all sorts of weird electronic devices" Michaud said.

Allah-Las are also set to tour the UK in May. They will play:

Bristol, Exchange (May 16)
Brighton, Uncut Stage/Pavillion at The Great Escape (May 17)
London, Dingwalls (May 20)
