Gengahr have posted a video for Before Sunrise, the lead single of their upcoming sophomore LP.

'Where Wildness Grows', the follow up to 2015's 'A Dream Outside', will arrive on March 9 via Transgressive Records. 

The video, meanwhile, was filmed in Casablanca by director Jamie Whitby and features teenage moped gang the Anfa Riders. Speaking about it, Whitby said:

“This one's super special for me - the culmination of multiple trips to Morocco and months of WhatsApp chats in very dodgy French trying to convince the Anfa Riders to let this weird guy from London come and shoot with them. Huge thanks to the the guys  for having us and a big shout out to our local fixer Karim El-Amri and my amazing tiny crew - Sorcha, Jack, and Ruben - who somehow made it all happen in one of the maddest cities in the world.”

Alongside the video, Gengahr have announced the second edition of their Gengahr Gallery, following the 2015 debut event. The exhibition will run between March 14 and 20 at A-Side B-Side in Hackney, London and will feature original artwork from the band’s bassist Hugh Schulte, alongside pieces from members of Slaves, Alt-J, Toothless and Puppy.

The London-based quartet will follow up the record's release with a UK tour, which will include a show at KOKO in London. Check below for dates.

When we last spoke to Brian Fallon it was November 2016, eight months on from the release of his debut solo album, 'Painkillers’.

Franz Ferdinand - Always Ascending (Album Review)
Tue 13 Feb 2018
The most telling thing about the early 2000s post-punk revival was its lack of staying power. Razorlight, Maxïmo Park, the Futureheads and countless others came flying out the gates, but by the end of the decade they had more or less faded out. You could cite over-saturation, or cycles in trends, as the reason behind that, but much of it had to do with the style's limited scope.
