Poundland Of Hope And Glory video-watch it now!

In advance of the release of Hard Cold Fire on 05 May, we’re delighted to give you another taste of the album with our new video for Poundland of Hope and Glory. Following on from Joy, the track is another driving, anthemic tune with lyrics by vocalist/guitarist Andy Cairns.

Andy says, “this track started out as a hard take on how people lose themselves in narratives to the point that the myth takes on greater importance than the fact. Just like the old adage about the liar repeating the lie so much that they eventually believe it themselves, the culture around us is bursting with fairy stories we tell ourselves.”

“Hard Cold Fire” coming May 5th, pre-order now!
