Yard Act have announced their biggest headline show to date and shared the new video for their track ‘100% Endurance’ – you can watch the clip below.
The song is taken from the Leeds four-piece’s debut album ‘The Overload’, which arrived back in January.
The video for ‘100% Endurance’ was filmed in Blackpool and directed by Yard Act’s longtime collaborator James Slater, with the clip starring the actor David Thewlis. “I’ve told my agent I’m only doing Yard Act videos from now on, though next time on a tropical island or a big yacht,” the Fargo and Harry Potter actor said in a statement.
Speaking about the ‘100% Endurance’ video, Yard Act frontman James Smith added: “It was great shooting this video. I barely had to do anything, and I didn’t have fake facial hair glued to me head for once. I still can’t believe David got involved. I was such a fan of his work from Naked through to Fargo, and when I told James Slater he was interested in working with us he was so buzzing.
“A brilliant actor, and an absolute joy to watch work. Equally so, he is a thoroughly decent, down to earth person who is funny as fuck, and that goes a fair way I reckon.”
Yard Act have also announced their biggest headline show to date at London’s O2 Kentish Town Forum, which is set to take place on December 1.
Tickets for that London show will go on general sale at 10am on Friday (May 20), and you’ll be able to buy them here.
