School Damage reveal new video + announce album tour dates

Melbourne wonky popmeisters School Damage have just premiered an awesomely manic video for Gasbagging via Noisey.

The video, for one of the catchiest tracks from School Damage‘s new debut album School Damage, is directed by Sean McAnulty and Alex McLaren (who have made videos for Ausmuteants, Orb and the Murlocs), with illustrations by the band’s own Carolyn Hawkins.

Carolyn says – “After seeing videos that Sean and Alex had made for other bands, we approached them wanting to incorporate some of Carolyn’s illustrations into a video. Gasbagging is about feeling irritated by people that talk too much, so we were keen to create something that was visually chaotic, fractured and frantic, but also playful and humorous.”

The band are also taking this opportunity to announce their SchoolDamage album launch dates in August/September, kicking off in Melbourne with a huge double album launch with Terry, who are also launching their new album Remember Terry.
