Deus premiere video, discuss new LP

By | Published on Wednesday 6 June 2012


Despite having issued an LP in October of last year, Belgian avant-rockers Deus have already sent out a sequel in the just-released ‘Following Sea’.

The band began recording the new record in the immediate wake of its forerunner ‘Keep You Close’, and vocalist Tom Barman says that, in part, its prompt completion was “borne out of shame after delivering nine songs for ‘Keep You Close’ in two years”.

He also says: “We had songs we didn’t want to lose, didn’t want to have sat on a shelf for four years so we decided to break our previous way of working and be less precious and finish the songs quickly and then release them to the public. It’s 2012 for fuck’s sake, the idea of waiting months to release stuff seems so old fashioned”.

Ah, if only all musicians thought that way. Justin Timberlake, for instance. Anyway, here’s the brand new video for ‘Following Sea’ single ‘Quatre Mains’. Well, not quite yet, because before/after viewing the video you can also see Barman’s track-by-track discussion of his band’s new album. It’s most informative, I think you’ll agree.
