“Beliefs get weirder, darker, more industrial on new album ‘Habitat'” –  Noisey
Toronto’s Beliefs (Jesse Crowe and Josh Korody) have shared their latest apocalyptic video for “All Things Considered” via Earmilk.

“All Things Considered” is similar in style to their previous video for “Retreat (Light The Fire”) and also directed by Christopher Mills.

“All Things Considered is the moment after something big,” says Mills. “So big it totally altered time and space and turned the world into a demolished, abandoned art gallery, surrounded by flaming ruins and inhabited by magic women who seem to be stuck in a broken portal vortex.”

“[It’s] the aftermath,” writes Beliefs’ Jesse Crowe. “It’s the cold death of culture that the city has long forgotten. It’s the ash left smouldering. After the fire. It’s the remanence of poison on the rim of the Kool-Aid cup.”

“All Things Considered”  is taken from Beliefs third album, Habitat, which is out now on Outside Music/Hand Drawn Dracula.

Habitat was finished in an impressive 16 days, with Korody serving as producer and engineer, studio multi-tasker Leon Taheny (Austra, Death From Above 1979, Owen Pallett) sitting in as drummer and mixed by Holy Fuck’s Graham Walsh (Preoccupations, Alvvays and METZ).

“It’s a dark record, for sure,” affirms Crowe. “I feel like we were drawing a lot more from, like, me being a Goth teenager and Josh only wanting to listen to Aphex Twin and me only wanting to listen to Portishead’s Third for the last year and stuff like that. But also it was time to embody the elements of being a ‘wall-of-sound’ band with some space and the idea of being able to be quiet when you should be quiet, and you can’t do that with three guitars. There’s no space. It just becomes all push and no pull.”

The shoegaze, post-punk duo are one of the most renowned Toronto bands with co-founder Josh Korody becoming the engineer of choice for bands such as Dilly Dally, Weaves, Greys and more. Following their explosive set at The Great Escape this past May, the band return to the UK for a handful of dates which will find them back in Brighton supporting good friends, and fellow Torontonians, Metz.

UK Shows:
November 22nd – London – The Brewhouse
November 23th – Hull – The Polar Bear
November 25th – Brighton – The Haunt (With Metz)
November 26th – Oxford – The Library
