LUNA Reveal Video for “Fire in Cairo” starring Rose McGowan

Luna have unveiled their dazzling video for their take on The Cure’s “Fire In Cairo.” The video stars Rose McGowan and was directed by the Academy Award and Emmy-nominated Keven McAlester (Last Days In Vietnam, You’re Gonna Miss Me). Of the track the band’s Dean Wareham says, “those first three albums by The Cure made a big impression on me as a teenager and ‘Fire in Cairo‘ is one of the first songs I learned when I started playing guitar. We are so happy Rose McGowan decided to do this video.” Watch here

LUNA will release both A Sentimental Education (an LP of covers) and A Place Of Greater Safety (an EP of instrumentals) on September 22 on Double Feature Records. These mark the band’s first output since Luna’s beloved Rendezvous, released 13 years ago. The lineup remains the same as when they last recorded: Dean Wareham, Sean Eden, Lee Wall, Britta Phillips.
