Nine Black Alps are an institution.
At a time when British rock music is being pushed further and further away from the mainstream, the band have managed to not only survive but thrive.
Yet the environment they exist in is constantly changing. The band's long term home of Brew Records passed on earlier this year, with Hatch Records emerging in its wake.
Clambering on board, Nine Black Alps have been working on fresh material, with new single 'Novokaine' due to be released on December 2nd.
Clash is able to present the video for the track before anyone else. A riotous mixture of colliding guitar lines, off kilter vocals and collapsing drums, the clip for 'Novokaine' was shot DIY style in a rehearsal room.
Watch it below.
