White Denim are going on a tour of the UK, which sounds lovely, doesn’t it? All that touring and music and stuff. More bands should do it. The run will include their biggest UK show to date, at The Roundhouse in Camden. Not taking place until October, the shows come off the back of the band’s recently released new album ‘Stiff’.

The latest single – ‘Ha Ha Ha Ha (Yeah)’ – recently got itself a video, of which director Jonatán López says: “When we initially heard the song, we envisioned a choreographed dance. Around the same time, we’d been watching deleted scenes from Jackie Chan’s golden era, and somehow those deleted scenes led us to a particular one with John Travolta from Urban Cowboy. We muted the video, played the song, and thought, ‘yeah, this is it’. Travolta was relentless. He kept trying to nail the dance take after take, and we loved that energy. So we built a video around that moment”.

So, yeah, watch it here:
