Boston Manor unveiled a dark new music video for their song “Bad Machine.”
Earlier today, the band dropped their new single “Bad Machine,” a new track taken off of their highly anticipated second album Welcome To The Neighbourhood, out Sept. 7 via Pure Noise Records.
The film noir-inspired video was directed and edited by the band’s vocalist Henry Cox, with Tom Hancox serving as the director of photography.
Of the video, Cox shared:
“When we composed the song we already had accompanying visuals in mind for it and when recording the album we had films playing in the background that we thought would match up with the sounds we were making.
We knew we wanted to capture some of the sleaziness of the track & condense the video down to a sequence of ‘moments’, almost like a movie trailer. The song has such massive differences in dynamics between the verses & choruses so it was important that we captured that in the video.”
Watch the video below:

In addition to the new video, the band’s vocalist shared that the new record has seen the band push themselves in ways that they didn’t for their first record, 2016’s Be Nothing.
“I think the time between the last record and this one, we kind of thought we knew who we were,” Henry Cox shares, “but we’ve realized that even now we’re still figuring that out. Before, we were scared to try stuff, whereas on this record there were no limits. We wanted to push ourselves, instead of being terrified to dip just one little toe in the wrong direction.”
We’re beyond excited for the band’s new album, and we’ll listening to the new track for the rest of the day!
