MIDWICH CUCKOOS Share Animated Action Video For New Single ‘To The Grave’

11th November 2021

Punk crossover band, Midwich Cuckoos, are pleased to share their new single ‘To The Grave’ available to stream today through all good digital service providers. 

To celebrate the release, the band have unveiled a new animated music video which is available to watch HERE

The track is taken from their forthcoming studio albumDeath or Glory released digitally In two parts: Death (released 24th Nov 2021) and Glory (released 23rd Feb 2021) with a physical album release set for 8th April 2021 via Onslaught Music.

A visual homage to 80s action-adventure programmes, the music video is comprised of rich animated stills by artist, Will Tubby. It documents Midwich Cuckoo’s infamous plague doctor mascot, Dee Dee, as they face down a bold assortment of mysterious enemies.

Commenting on the single and video, drummer Dan Rouse explains: “As the title suggests, the track is about keeping a secret, at all costs. The idea is that there are some people who might choose to give you up / betray you to get ahead, and there are others that will put absolutely everything on the line to protect you and take your secrets TO THE GRAVE.”

“Covid brought out different things in different people, some came together, others relished the change of pace, some frayed at the edges, some totally lost their shit. It brought about a different outlook on life for many of us. To the grave celebrates all the change that stirred things up and made us question the norm and re-evaluate the day-to-day.”

“The secret formula serum vial 🧪 is a recurring icon in the video. Everyone’s looking for a cure or a solution for something. For illness, for covid, for making ends meet, for boredom. There are always those that spot an opportunity to take advantage of a situation and even turn a profit. There are deals to be made. It represents something that could maybe fix everything and bring back things we’ve lost, or maybe not…”

Midwich Cuckoos’ latest release coincides with news that they will be joining the lineup for the 2022 instalment of Manchester Punk Festival alongside The Skints, A Wilhelm ScreamBelvedere and many more.

Further details and live dates will be revealed over the coming months.
