Blood Red Shoes have unveiled the video for their new single 'Lost Kids' which is due for release on May 14. You can watch the video by clicking above.

The track is the latest single to be taken from their third album 'In Time To Voices', which was released on March 19.

Speaking about the single, the band's Steven Ansell explains that they took inspiration from the riots in London last summer:

This was written bang in the middle of the "London Riots". At the time the images on TV were of streets on fire and smashed up buildings, and strangely Laura and I were fighting like crazy at this point.


He added: "It just felt like there was a lot of destructive, frustrated energy in the air, but we didn't want to write about it as an overtly political song, so this is an attempt to bring together all of that into one. It does feel like there are many lost souls in the world right now."

'In Time To Voices' was recorded at The Motor Museum in Liverpool and co-produced with Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Tribes).

The band are currently on tour throughout the UK and are set to play their biggest UK show to date at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on October 18. They will also be playing Reading and Leeds festivals.
