Following the sinister tale told in GANG’s new video for ‘Dead’, the Brighton via Margate three-piece today reveal part two of their grave tale in a new video for ‘Enough Nothing’, the flip-side to their AA-side 7” single, out now via Ra-Ra Rok Records. GANG today also confirm they will be playing at 2017’s SXSW festival in Austin, Texas.

Director Chris Wade of Dog Brain videos explains, “I developed an unhealthy obsession with finding the truth behind what really happened to my friends in Gang. I did some digging, and came across a whole network of people who said they had seen some strange things in the area. But it went deeper. Much deeper. It wasn’t really my place to start digging around in conspiracies, so I passed it on to the guys over at Open Universe. I’m a big fan of their stuff!”

Originally from Canterbury and Margate, now residing in Brighton, Gang are brothers Eric and Jimi Tormey and adopted sibling Joseph Hunt. Relying on a strong set of ethics, driven by the ethos to ‘do it themselves’, they seek to remain unified, not unaided. “To separate us is to conquer us, and unity is strength”, Jimi explains of their manifesto. “For this reason we surround ourselves with likeminded, creative individuals, forming a community – Gang is a messiah, an illustrator, a photographer, a videographer. We are any and all who aid us. Each of us is branded with a Gang tattoo committing ourselves to unity. D.I.Y, as we know it, is dead – R.I.P to D.I.Y – killed by vapid, lo-fi bedroom pop. We’ll D.I.O until we D.I.E.”

‘Dead’ stems from modern apathy,” Jimi continues. “We’re all dying right now and sadly in this modern, consumerist age we are taught, throughout life, to be concerned most with the clothes that cover us and represent us in death. Because of this we’ll be releasing this song alongside a clothing item with our friends at Terrible Merch (post ironic, huh?). If life is like writing a letter, then dying is one’s signature and death itself is the sealing of the envelope. We need not fear the end because it is one’s life that will echo in the words of the letter. One end is a new beginning and as long as the postal service doesn’t misplace you then the lives we have led will echo endlessly. So why don’t we stop trying to feed the void with money’s lack of sustenance and try to get a better feel for what’s important. We don’t want to feel better. We want to better feel.”

Following their praised ‘Animalia’ 7”, released earlier this year via Corner Shop Pop Records alongside a self-organised tour of the UK and a BBC 6Music session with Marc Riley, Gang have played alongside Sub Pop’s So Pitted and US sludge-lords Wand, who they will reunite with on a small UK tour through November on the dates below. All of Gang’s music is recorded by Eric at Barnroom Studios, the garage/studio of their father, cult guitarist Bernie Tormé (Ex-Ozzy Osbourne & Atomic Rooster), utilising the weird and wonderful recording equipment that he has collected over the years.
