BADBADNOTGOOD Shares Dizzying Single “Beside April”, Plots 2021–2022 International Tour [Video]


BADBADNOTGOOD has offered a new single, “Beside April”, off the group’s forthcoming album, Talk Memory. The fifth album from the Canadian jazz ensemble is out on October 8th via XL/Innovative Leisure. The group has also announced an international tour set to begin in December.

The song opens with what has slowly become BADBADNOTGOOD’s trademark jazzy sound. The rhythm is washed out with a growing chorus of horns before the song’s style changes drastically midway through. From the group’s horn-driven jazz to Frank Zappa-like guitar explosions, “Beside April” builds to a frenetic pace that inches as close to rock music as BADBAD has come thus far. Meanwhile, the Camille Summers-Valli-directed video shot in the mountains of Kazbegi, Georgia takes on Twin Peaks-ian qualities with the pronounced presence of an ominous white horse.

“There was really special energy around this video,” director Camille Summers-Valli said in a statement. “The band wanted to do something with horses and equestrians. That’s where this begun. Funnily enough, I am petrified of horses. But it felt like a good way to overcome my fears. Subconsciously through a process of reading, finding references and discussing with my team, I started to piece together the puzzle of what this video could be. We shot this in Georgia; where the casting was incredible. The horse also was wonderful. So strong and majestic, we just wanted to do this beautiful creature justice. The magic aligned, so many great hard working people pulled this video together.”

BADBADNOTGOOD has also announced an extensive tour set to begin with a string of dates across Canadian in December. The tour picks back up in the U.S. in March 2022 with shows in Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Boston, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, across Texas, and more. The group then travels throughout Europe in November and December 2022. Tickets for all the 2022 dates go on sale on September 10th at 10 a.m. local time.
