White Lung share new video “Sister” – Extend Tour – 2016 Polaris Prize Nomination, winner announced tonight

Canadian punk band White Lung have released a new video for track “Sister“.  It was directed by Justin Gradin, who also directed White Lung’s ‘Hungry’ video and features a man’s attempt at finding love with two strangers. The track comes from Paradise, the fourth album from White Lung, which was released in May of this year. WATCH / SHARE: “SISTER” VIA YOUTUBE

Gradin on the video:

“In a lonely world a man seeks to find love through his telephone. He discovers two women with whom he becomes obsessed with from their captivating and elegant conversations. In the end, these two women’s thrilling lives and escalating partying leave the man feeling isolated and rejected again.

It’s basically a 90s chat line commercial on PCP.

Today, the 2016 Polaris Music Prize will be awarded at a gala held in the ballroom of the Carlu in Toronto. White Lung will perform two songs from their Polaris shortlisted album, Paradise. Catch all the performances via live stream HERE.

White Lung will be touring throughout Canada for the month of October before heading down to Texas for the first annual Sound on Sound Festival. They’ve also announced a performance at this year’s Red Bull’s 30 Days in LA Festival plus a string of dates throughout Australia.
