Shearwater's new single, Breaking the Yearling, is available to download and is the lead single from the band's eighth studio album, Animal Joy, which will be released in the UK on February 27th, 2012. The band will be playing five UK dates, which will take place from the end of March until the start of April 2012.
The video for Breaking the Yearling was directed by Branan Edgens. Amongst footage of live and taxidermied animals, we also see singer Jonathan Meiburg being experimented on by an unknown person. It's strange, to say the least but it's original at the same time.
Formed in 1999, Shearwater comprise: Jonathan Meiburg; Thor Harris; Kimberly Burke; Kevin Schneider and Jordan Geiger. Animal Joy has already been released in their native US and has received positive reviews, with many calling it 'their most ambitious album yet.' In the past, the band have toured with the likes of Clinic; Wye Oak and Coldplay. Currently, Shearwater are touring in the US; they will embark on a European tour in March 2012, which will see them performing in the UK.
