Protomartyr deliver new single 'Michigan Hammers'

With their eagerly-awaited new album on the horizon, Protomartyr have now unveiled the next cut to be taken from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Michigan Hammers' comes accompanied by a brilliant video, directed by Yoonha Park, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Worm In Heaven' and 'Processed By The Boys' in previewing their new LP 'Ultimate Success Today', which is due to released on the 17th July via Domino Recordings.

Speaking about the new video, the director said, “This video is a retelling of a well-known Michigan folk tale that describes timeless themes of greed, power, death and rebirth and nothing short of the conflict of good and evil.”

While the band's Joe Casey further explains, "Couldn't make a ‘proper’ video due to the miasma. So why not make one using what tools remain? That's sort of what MICHIGAN HAMMERS is about I think - building with rubble. It's probably about that and mules, syndicates, too many parking lots, camaraderie, the ideal happy hour, failure, and takin' what they're givin' 'cause we're workin' for a livin' until we start takin' it to the streets. Or something like that."
