Black Futures share video for call-to-arms anthem ‘Me.TV’

In a time of fractured society, divisive politics, self-absorbed introspection and narcissistic social media obsessions, YOUR COUNTRY AND YOUR COMMUNITY NEEDS YOU!


And so, to motivate and encourage participation by all right-thinking music fans for the greater good of this planet – and your own local neighbourhoods – sonic space punks Black Futures have partnered with, an online platform providing opportunities for volunteering in your local area, reflecting their ethos of community spirit and their desire to unite.

You can visit the band’s newly re-launched website in partnership with here. Sign up, reach out, make friends, get involved and in this time of existential crisis and amidst the relentless barrage of despairing headlines, make a difference to the world, however big or small. YOUR COUNTRY AND YOUR COMMUNITY NEEDS YOU! comments on the collaboration: “In a time of turmoil and digital anonymity, the world needs more help and volunteers than ever. DOIT, as the UK’s leading volunteering platform, applaud the beating drum and rallying cry of Black Futures’ Me.TV.  We stand together, providing our backing to their anthemic call to arms. Turn down your Me.TV and turn up for your community by joining the volunteering community and discovering thousands of opportunities in your local area.”

In addition to launching their volunteering initiative, Black Futures have just shared the video for their new single, ‘Me.TV’ featuring a call-to-arms monologue from Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie. ‘Me.TV’ combines pulsating bass and caustic distortion with passionate and intense vocals to convey an inspiring message of compassion and unity.

Imploring us all to reject self-centred attitudes, it calls for action to “Turn Down Your Me.TV, and Turn Up For Your Community.”

Visualising the track’s message in a beautifully chaotic display of unification, the video sees the band’s army of anonymous hazmats coming together and collaborating in creating a microcosmic social revolution; injecting colour into a monochrome world.

‘Me.TV’ follows the previous single ‘Trance’, both of which are taken from the duo’s upcoming debut album, details of which will be revealed in the near future.

Having completed a tour supporting Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes earlier this year, the band will be continuing their assault on venues nationwide with a run of live shows in March and April.

Accompanied by their army of silent hazmats, the tour concludes with a date at London’s The Lexington, in addition to festival dates including Download, Boomtown, Hit The North and Camden Rocks. Full dates can be found below, and tickets are available here.
