Villagers – Passing A Message

Directed by Billy Pilgrim

Villagers are stirring back into life.

Led by Conan O'Brien, the band's superb debut album 'Becoming A Jackal' won widespread critical praise – even making the short list for the Mercury Music Prize. Taking time off, Villagers are set to release new album '{Awayland}' on January 14th.

New track 'Passing A Mesage' has emerged online. Typically beautiful songwriting, it finds Villagers gently evolving from the artistic breakthrough which was 'Becoming A Jackal'. The video itself is well worth watching – directed by Billy Pilgrim, the lyrics flash by with various colours and patterns passing behind each word.

Watch it now.

Meanwhile, Villagers are set to play two shows next month. Opening in Belfast on November 11th, the band will then a sold out show at Dublin venue Whelans on November 13th.

Dates are as follows:


11 Belfast Black Box

13 Dublin Whelans (SOLD OUT)
