Holy State's new single Lady Magika is available as a free download from the band's website, as well as their Facebook page. Holy State's debut album, Electric Picture Palace, will be released in April 2012; they will also announce details of a UK tour to coincide with the album release.
The video for Lady Magika was directed by Robin Fuller. It sees the four piece play in front of a steampunk backdrop of various machinery. The second half of the video sees the engines and pistons form a rocket, which flies into space, with Holy State playing on top of it.
Leeds based Holy State formed in 2008 and signed to Brew Records earlier in December 2011. Brew will be releasing their debut album in April 2012, which was recorded on a ship (Lightspeed95). Holy State have toured with Blood Red Shoes and Rolo Tomassi and were handpicked by Biffy Clyro to join them on their UK arena tour.
