Lucius’ video for “Gone Insane” premieres on Pitchfork + additional tour dates confirmed‏

Lucius’ new music video for the track “Gone Insane” premieres today via Pitchfork. Nathan Johnson directed the dream-inspired video from a series of more than 20,000 photographs. “Bands don’t make videos like this anymore,” Johnson says. “Often, you’ve got a day to shoot, but this was a month-long project, Jess [Wolfe] and Holly [Laessig] were so committed to this ridiculous, full-on approach that included 20 hours in a makeup chair and four grueling days in front of the stop-motion rig. Definitely the most insane video we’ve done,” Johnson adds. “Gone Insane” appears on Lucius’ latest album Good Grief. Watch the full video here: http://bit.ly/1OeAC5M.

Of the video vocalist Jess Wolfe says, “The video was inspired by a dream I had…The idea of perception and illusion and perspective, dysmorphia… All driving me a bit crazy. Holly [Laessig] took that concept and added to it… a mannequin, a spinning room, and thousands of photographs our vision came to life.”

After a sold out east coast run, Lucius is currently on the west coast with upcoming headlining performances at New York’s SummerStage, Denver’s Gothic Theater, Dallas’ Trees, Birmingham’s The Saturn, Washington’s 9:30 Club, Boston’s House Of Blues and more. Of their live show, The New York Times hails, “What’s impressive about this duo is how the two use their approach to several different effects: one moment, it was as if they were singing in the round at the Ryman; the next, they attempted extravagant Pointer Sisters-like up-tempo soul; later, it was Velvet Underground-style whispers.” Tickets can be purchased at ilovelucius.com/tour.
