Video Launches in anticipation of new Album on June 14th.

Two Door Cinema Club have unveiled the Science Fiction inspired video for Satellite, the second single taken from their forthcoming fourth studio album False Alarm, out 14th June via Prolifica Inc [PIAS] / Gallo Record Company.

The splendidly kitsch space-age video, directed by Eion Glaister, finds the three piece beamed to out of space, with frontman Alex Trimble playing the beleaguered captain of the galaxy’s grooviest battleship. It’s a gloriously tongue-in-cheek adventure, which references everything from Star Wars to Battlestar Galactica and is the perfect accompaniment to ‘Satellites retro Kraut-pop influences and themes of futuristic dread.

The band’s first album to be released in full collaboration with Prolifica Inc, False Alarm finds the three piece gloriously unshackled and creatively at the peak of their game. Across its ten tracks False Alarm wryly scans and satirises the social and environmental woes of 2019 through the prism of wonderfully off-kilter pop, simultaneously borrowing from and warping elements of future pop, disco, rock, funk and soul.

Recorded in sessions between London and LA with producer Jacknife Lee it’s an LP that takes the familiar and twists it, to startling and stimulating effect. It all makes for a wide-eyed, culture-encompassing leap forward for the band, a record liable to break, ruin and remould pop in 2019.

Having put the icing on their comeback last summer with a landmark headline performance in front of 35,000 people at London’s Community Festival, Two Door Cinema Club are stepping back onto the festival circuit this year, with performances lined up at Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Glastonbury, before they head out on a headline UK tour in the autumn, with a landmark show at London’s O2 Arena on October 11th.
