Good morning all. Here’s the new video from Lightning Dust. Directed by Helen Reed, “Diamond” features a swimming hole of sorts. Slowly, a group of synchronized swimmers emerge. What does it all mean? You decide. Watch above. You can also check out the video at EXCLAIM! or Gorilla vs. Bear.
“Diamond” is the first single from the duo’s forthcoming album, Fantasy. Out June 25, the record is now available for pre-order purchasing at iTunes, Amazon, and SC Distribution.
We also have the first round of confirmed tour dates, including Oregon’s Pickathon Festival! You will find the full list of dates and links below.
Lightning Dust are back with their third proper full-length – Fantasy. Set for US release on June 25, the new album marks a sonic turn for the Vancouver duo and ensures you’ll have just the perfect soundtrack for your forthcoming road trip. See exactly what we mean with the first single, “Diamond,” available for streaming above or at Urban Outfitters.
Fantasy came to be after many hours spent in Amber and Josh’s shared recording studio, The Balloon Factory. In that time, the duo took on a new, more-informed sound that still delivers the rich atmosphere we’ve grown to know Lightning Dust for. But who are we to say? Decide for yourself after pre-ordering Fantasy at SC Distribution, iTunes or Amazon. The deluxe bundle, available only at SCD, includes the album on both CD and vinyl, a glossy poster, a limited-edition 7″ and an early download of the album available starting June 11. COOL!
It’s been a minute since we’ve delivered some news on Lightning Dust, but fans will be happy to hear the duo have a new split 7″ coming out with Hard Drugs this fall. On October 4, The Storyboard Label will release Lightning Dust “Never Again” b/w Hard Drugs “Summertime Blues” in the form of a white vinyl 7″. These are limited to just 550 copies, and will be available in select Vancouver record stores and Lightning Dust will have some for sale during their upcoming European tour dates. The 7″ is also available for pre-order on The Storyboard Label’s website starting today!
