REVEAL VIDEO FOR ‘I PREFER YOU WAY BEYOND INIBRIATED’
‘THE BETTER PARTS OF YOU’ EP
RELEASED 7th NOVEMBER 2014
Leeds 4-piece Bad Ideas today reveal the video for ‘I Prefer You Way Beyond Inebriated,’ the first single from their new EP ‘The Better Parts of You.’ Filmed by Wetheconspiritors, a Leeds based production company, the video features actor Jason Woodcock and plays on the themes of Jekyll and Hyde-esque deception present in the lyrics, video director Fraser West said of the track:
“We played with the idea of being tormented by your alter ego and not knowing if it’s really you doing the crazy stuff.”
‘The Better Parts of You,’ released November 7th, will be the bands third release, with two full length albums in their catalogue. Having previously always included acoustic elements on their tracks, this latest EP is the first fully electric recording from Bad Ideas, it was ironic then as the band took a more electric approach to writing that they eschewed digital recording techniques in favour of Greenmount Studios in Leeds, creating the EP using their analogue systems recording onto 2 inch tape, Greenmount’s previous output having included The Cribs, Pulled Apart by Horses and Brawlers.
Bad Ideas tour Europe this year, with UK dates in the pipe line, they will head out on the road in November for 9 days taking in shows in Germany and Holland and playing shows with Joyce Manor and Cheap Girls on the tour.
