13 May 2014, 10:00
First Aid Kit have announced five UK dates for this September.
The Swedish sisters will play Glasgow, Belfast, Manchester, Bristol before finishing up with a show at London's Royal Albert Hall.
The band have just released the video for new single My Silver Lining, the first taste of new album Stay Gold, which is out 9 June.
The My Silver Lining video was directed by Elliott Sellers and shot at the Paramour Mansion in Los Angeles.
“We wanted to create an intriguing and mysterious world where everything is just slightly off and the mansion slowly comes to life," First Aid Kit had to say of the experience.
"The idea of things in life changing, even scaring you, but still having to carrying on despite it all is a theme in the song which we wanted to convey in the video. This was the first time working with Elliot Sellers and he really impressed us with his creative ideas and passionate dedication. We are very pleased with the way it turned out!"
Stay Gold, First Aid Kit was recorded at ARC studios in Omaha and produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Monsters of Folk) and arrangements were by Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes, Broken Bells, Rilo Kiley).
"We took new directions and turns with the arrangements, building them up and creating more dynamics, yet always following where the songs wanted to go."
