The promo clip for the band's new single was shot in a spooky abandoned building in Philadelphia
The Walkmen have unveiled the black and white video for their new single, ‘The Love You Love’.
Scroll down to watch the video, which was shot in an apparently haunted house in Philadelphia. The video was directed by Sean Pecknold. Speaking to Urban Outfitters about the location, he said: “…it was supposedly one of the most haunted houses in all of Philadelphia. It had been left as is for the last however many years. Whoever had moved out before had left all of this stuff, so it was kind of amazing.”
The video stars the son of Peter Bauer from the band, Otis. Pecknold added: “There’s definitely a strange energy there. Otis was quite a champ for going through that, but he looked like he just fit that world, especially wearing that suit. It feels like he’s been left alone by his rich parents or something; forgotten.”
The Walkmen play a number of UK and Ireland dates later this year. The band recently released their seventh album ‘Heaven’ and will play five shows in October.
The tour kicks off at Birmingham’s HMV Institute on October 27 and runs until November 1, when the band headline London’s HMV Forum. The band will also play this summer’s Green Man Festival.
