Straight off the back of a run of dates supporting Gnarwolves and a ferocious set at The Great Escape Festival, Leeds duo Kamikaze Girls are today pleased to reveal the video for 'Deathcap'.
The news comes ahead of a further run of co-headline tour dates with Nervus and UK festival appearances over the summer, and the track is the latest to be taken from their upcoming debut full-length, Seafoam, released 9th June via Big Scary Monsters (UK) and Wiretap Records (US).

The clip was shot by Katie McMillan, and edited by vocalist/guitarist Lucinda Livingstone.
Commenting on the track, Livingstone explains: "The song's about how often the media attacks the entire millennial generation, and I guess we were mocking how much they seem to want to pin such a broad label on a really diverse set of people that are just doing their best to get along, for the most part."
Referencing fellow Leeds band Then Thickens' superb debut album Death Cap At Anglezarke, it's another cuttingly honestly missive from the pen of Livingstone, who continues to highlight the anxiety and inequality of the modern world with startling insight.
Seafoam is the follow-up to Kamikaze Girls' acclaimed debut EP, SAD. Exploring wider musical influences from shoegaze, fuzz-pop and the heavier side of the genre-spectrum they call home, it's a record that feels like a weight being lifted and a focused, sharpened quill being shifted to new targets.
Seafoam is released 9th June via Big Scary Monsters & Wiretap Records
