In a few more weeks, Blackpool’s own Boston Manor will be releasing their eagerly-awaited sophomore studio full-length album, ‘Welcome To The Neighbourhood’.

Before then, the band have now unveiled its second single, ‘Bad Machine’, and with it an accompanying film noir-esque video too.

The video was filmed over the course of three nights in Blackpool this summer, with frontman Henry Cox handling director and editor duties. He also spoke further on the song and video.

“When we composed the song we already had accompanying visuals in mind for it and when recording the album we had films playing in the background that we thought would match up with the sounds we were making. We knew we wanted to capture some of the sleaziness of the track & condense the video down to a sequence of ‘moments’, almost like a movie trailer. The song has such massive differences in dynamics between the verses & choruses so it was important that we captured that in the video.”

You can stream and watch the video for ‘Bad Machine’ below.

The band’s second studio album, ‘Welcome To The Neighbourhood’, is set for release on September 7th 2018 via Pure Noise Records.
