The Mission UK Unveil "Sometimes The Brightest Light Comes From The Darkest Place" Music Video

The Mission UK have unveiled the music video for "Sometimes the Brightest Light Comes From the Darkest Place", the lead single from their upcoming 13th studio album The Brightest Light, which will be out on September 17th via End Records. 

About the album frontman Wayne Hussey says: "This is my rock album. My wife calls it my 'testosterone album'. It’s all fully flexed muscle and proud of itself. I wanted us to capture as closely as possible the sound that we make when we play live, and I believe that for the very first time ever we have mostly succeeded.”

The video, directed by Rhory Danniells, is shot from frontman Wayne Hussey’s POV as he rolls out of bed and makes his way through semi-naked ladies and ample booze to that night’s Mish gig, which is where it concludes. Watch it below.

The six-minute trailer includes samples of unreleased tracks along with the first single "Your Life Is A Lie." In the video, frontman Andrew VanWyngarden starts off in his home somewhere in the jungle, gets attacked by a possum, and heads to band practice where the group rehearses a previously unheard track. 

Then, the clip takes an unexpected turn when it's revealed that the NSA is spying on the band, discovering that extraterrestrial beings referred to as the “Reptoids” have heard the new MGMT album and are now heading to Earth.

Watch: Crystal Stilts Unveil Music Video For "Star Crawl"

New York indie band Crystal Stilts have unveiled the video for their latest single "Star Crawl", taken from their forthcoming third album 'Nature Noir', due out on September 17th via Sacred Bones Records. 

The clip was directed by Daniel Fetherston, and features colorful landscapes.

Talking about the visuals, the band explained: "We took off one morning to go capture random sweeping scenes. Rivers and valleys, trees and ponds ... in a word, nature. I guess the album has that feel as opposed to the earliest Crystal Stilts material, which could refer to the cities, the subways, thoughts and frustrations that are kept inside oneself. This song is perhaps about doing grandiose things, but knowing it’s not in you. The long sweeping shots of the Hudson Valley, and elsewhere at least somewhat resemble the scale of those claims."
