Beirut announce 28 tour dates and share video for ‘When I Die’

Beirut have announced 28 new tour dates today in the UK, European and US, including a stop in Gallipoli, the namesake of the band’s fifth studio album, which was released earlier this year.

The band revealed a video for ‘When I Die’, directed by contemporary multimedia artist Brody Condon. The video echoes the themes of the song, which is loosely inspired by a fictional suicide cult. Filmed inside a Futuro 13 house in Berlin, the band tests each other’s boundaries with a series of group experiments. Watch the video here:

Led by Zach Condon, Beirut’s fifth studio record Gallipoli was released earlier this year to widespread praise. In a 4 STAR review Rolling Stone says it’s Zach Condon’s “most emotional set yet” and The Associated Press hailed “Gallipoli is the album we need today – one that celebrates cultures colliding”. Uncut says it’s Zach Condon’s “best album in years, arguably his best yet” and in their 9/10 review The Line Of Best Fit says it “is the sound of one of our most talented musicians rediscovering his love for what he was born to do.”
