Listen to The Haxan Cloak and Father John Misty’s Remix of “Things It Would Have Been Helpful to Know Before the Revolution”

Father John Misty has collaborated with British musician and producer The Haxan Cloak for a remix of “Things It Would Have Been Helpful To Know Before the Revolution,” from Pure Comedy.  The rework strips the song of its lush instrumentation and glib tone.

The “…Revolution” remix follows the gorgeous, stop-motion video [watch here] directed by Chris Hopewell (Radiohead’s “Burn the Witch,” Run The Jewels’ “Don’t Get Captured”).  The song‘s apocalyptic themes and subtle humor are captured brilliantly throughout. The “…Revolution” video was constructed and filmed in three weeks at Jacknife Studios in Bristol, UK. Additionally, puppets and props from “…Revolution” were recently auctioned off and the proceeds will be donated to the Environmental Defense Fund.

Watch Father John Misty’s Hilariously Absurd New Video for “Total Entertainment Forever”

Plus New UK Shows Added to 2017 International Schedule.  

You’ll surely be pleased (as we are) to see that Father John Misty has unleashed a new video, as hilarious as it is absurd, for “Total Entertainment Forever” off his acclaimed new album Pure Comedy.

 
In “Total Entertainment Forever” we find George Washington donning a virtual reality helmet and experiencing a simulation wherein Kurt Cobain gets crucified by corporate fascists.  The video stars Father John Misty along with Thomas Bayne, Macaulay Culkin, Jack Dishel, Spencer Fox, David Garland, Toby Goodshank, Adam Green, Mical Klip, Tei Shi, and Dan Shure.
 

“Total Entertainment Forever” was directed by Four Gods and a Baby (Adam Green, Thomas Bayne, Toby Goodshank, Macaulay Culkin), edited by Jordan Galland, and features cinematography by Ryan Foregger with costume design by Cara Alpert and Jessie Abraham.


In also-recent good news, Father John Misty’s incredible stage performances at Coachella drew raves from the likes of The Guardian, L.A. Times, Rolling StoneUSA Today, and more. [watch his inspired performance of ”Ballad of the Dying Man”]. “At the sundown set on the Main Stage, Misty proved that the act is up, and he has found his voice. It’s a gorgeous one. Backed by a small orchestra and a trim-suited live band, Misty looked like he had just got out of the shower after surviving a three-day bender in a luxury hotel. Snakeskin moccasins, sunglasses at night, windswept long hair — every detail was spot-on. But let’s be clear — he’s not kidding anymore. He never was, really, but now he’s devoted all his wit and psychedelic musings into writing the best songs of his life, and playing them beautifully,” says the L.A. Times.


Pure Comedy’s front/back covers and gatefold features a gargantuan original piece (his first ever commission of its kind) by Ed Steed (The New Yorker) and is now available through Father John Misty’s Official StoreSub Pop Mega MartBella UnionAmazonApple MusicTarget, and a finer music retailer near you.

TOUR DATES (so. many. tour dates.)

Father John Misty has added UK dates to his 2017 international headlining tour this fall in support of Pure Comedy. The new dates include November 1st in Edinburgh at Usher Hall November 2nd in Glasgow at O2 Academy,  November 5th in Manchester at O2 Apollo and November 7th in London at Hammersmith Eventim Apollo.
