– SHARE PSYCHEDELIC VIDEO FOR “BULLETS AND ROCKS”
– FEATURING GUEST VOCALS FROM SAM BEAM (IRON & WINE)
– EUROPE & ISRAEL TOUR DATES

Calexico have shared a new video for their song ‘Bullets and Rocks’ one of the key tracks from this year’s acclaimed album ‘Edge Of The Sun’, which was released back in April on City Slang.

The video was directed by Aaron Hymes and features backing vocals and a guest performance from Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam.

For the better part of two decades, Calexico have crossed musical barriers, embracing a multitude of styles, variety in instrumentation, and well-cultivated signature sounds. On Edge of the Sun, Calexico find inspiration from a trip to a place surprisingly unexplored by the band before in Mexico City, and with the benefit of many friends and comrades including Sam Beam (Iron & Wine), Ben Bridwell (Band of Horses), Neko Case and many more.

“Calexico’s best work since 2003’s Feast Of Wire. This is a definite leap forward.” **** Q
“A classic.” The Sunday Times (Album of the Week)

“It’s a testament to the skill of the band’s core duo, vocalist/guitarist Joey Burns and percussionist John Convertino, that the results never lack coherence” 4/5, The Arts Desk
