The Unkindness of Ravens' new double A-side, Virus / Viper, is set to be released on October 3rd, via Sonic Fire Records. It is taken from their upcoming and highly anticipated album, which will be released sometime in 2012.
The video for Virus was shot by Oliver Sloane. Filmed against a white backdrop, a group of dancers - that also include one half of the band Nina - perform a routine to the tribal sounding song, while dressed in black, with matching makeup and messy hair.
In addition to vocalist Nina, The Unkindness of Ravens also includes fellow vocalist and bassist Ben. Their sound has been described as being 'The Kills on acid' and the band itself has drawn comparisons to the aforementioned The Kills and The White Stripes.
The release of the singles 'Dead Air' and 'White Road', as well as their debut EP 'I Used to be So Pretty', garnered the band acclaim in the press.
He also slapped a jet-lagged Taylor Hawkins.
The acclaimed performer had just cancelled touring due to a battle with cancer.
