UK cult-favourites Spearmint have released their new single 'St. Thomas In The Darkness'. The band previously revealed a video for the track directed by Martin Gordon and filmed in the Observer Building, Hastings that has been left derelict for over 30 years. Spearmint have announced the upcoming release of new album 'Are You From The Future?' for November 1st on hitBACK label.
Spearmint songwriter and lead singer, Shirley Lee, has said that lyrically, "it’s a love song, and it’s totally literal – I don’t feel like it needs any explanation. I’m very fond of the words as they are close to my heart, but also, I really like the “When I’m weak…” and the “I’m not good with names…” sections."
We shot the video in the Observer Building in Hastings with director Martin Gordon. I really enjoyed how pretentious it all got, almost Hammer Horror, with us creeping round the vaults in darkness."
All the door money for this show will be donated to the charity Meningitis Now.
