It’s pretty common knowledge at this stage that Dublin rock ‘n’ rollers The Mighty Stef have been over in LA recording their latest album with the help of acclaimed producer Alain Johannes (QOTSA, Mark Lanegan) and today they have released the video for Vampire, Hold Me Tight, our first sneak-peek into the fruits of their labour.
Directed by Lindsey Byrne, the video depicts the band performing against a backdrop of erratic visuals from British horror film The Wicker Man. It’s colourful, energetic, and goes hand in hand with the powerful, gritty, yet very catchy sound of the song. Vampire, Hold Me Tight is part of the upcoming three-track Iveagh Flats EP which will be part of a limited edition run of five hundred 12″ vinyls available to pre-order now from their website.
The Mighty Stef will be performing this Saturday and Sunday (12th/13th October) with The Boomtown Rats at Vicar St., but if you’d rather catch them at their own show, the lads are hosting a three-date residency upstairs at Whelan’s on November 7th and 21st, and a final date on December 5th. Tickets for each show are priced at €9.75 (incl. fees) but the band are offering a fanatics deal which includes tickets for each of the three nights for just €22.90 (incl. fees) so make sure to get yourself in for at least one gig, as each promises to be an entirely different and unique event!
