Balance and Composure have partnered with Clash Magazine to release the highly-anticipated video for “Afterparty,” the second single from their forthcoming new album Light We Made. “Afterparty” is the sister video to “Postcard,” which premiered previously on Pitchfork. The two videos take Balance and Composure fans through a hallucinogenic safari – the first video is the band within a mind-altering, psychedelic realm, and the second video picks up where the band starts to wake up from their trip.
Both “Postcard” and “Afterparty” appear on Light We Made, which is set for release this Friday, October 7th on Vagrant Records. Balance and Composure will celebrate the release of Light We Made with a pair of intimate CD release shows. Boot and Saddle will host the Philadelphia gathering on Friday,October 7th while Rough Trade NYC will congregate on Saturday, October 8th. The former sold it in less than a few hours and fans who purchase the new album at Rough Trade in Brooklyn will be treated to a full set on Saturday afternoon at 2 PM.
Additionally, as a thank you to fans who purchase an LP or CD of Light We Made, Balance and Composure have supplied a handful of independent record stores across the United States with a free, limited-edition “Postcard” 7″ featuring an exclusive, non-album b-side track called “Revelation” (while supplies last).
