The video for BELLE AND SEBASTIAN‘s forthcoming single ‘STEP INTO MY OFFICE, BABY’ has been directed by ‘FATHER TED’ co-creator GRAHAM LINEHAN.

The single, the first to be taken from the band’s new LP ‘Dear Catastrophe Waitress’, is released on November 17 via Rough Trade, and is backed with two brand new tracks – ‘Love On The March’ and ‘Desperation Made A Fool Of Me’.

The band has also been forced to reshuffle their UK tour for later this year. The Bradford date on December 12 has been axed. Instead the band will play Liverpool that night, that show moving from December 2. A show in Sheffield will now take place that night.

The shows are now at:

Sheffield City Hall (December 2)

London Astoria (3/4/5)

Bath Pavilion (7)

Brighton Dome (8)

Norwich UEA (9)

Newcastle Northumbria University (11)

Liverpool Royal Court Theatre (12)

Edinburgh Usher Hall (14)
