Yard Act announced their biggest show yet and shared new video for their track “100% Endurance” – you can watch the clip below.
The song is taken from the four Leeds musicians’ debut album, ‘The Overload’, which arrived in January.
The music video for “100% Endurance” was filmed in Blackpool and directed by longtime Yard Act collaborator James Slater, with the music video featuring actor David Thewlis. “I told my agent that I would only do Yard Act videos from now on, but next time on a tropical island or on a big yacht,” said the Fargo and Harry Potter the actor said in a statement.
Speaking of the ‘100% Endurance’ video, Yard Act leader James Smith added: “It was great shooting this video. I had almost nothing to do and I didn’t have fake hair stuck to my head for once. I still can’t believe David is involved. I was such a fan of his work ever since Naked until Fargoand when I told James Slater he was interested in working with us, he was so buzzy.
“A brilliant actor, and an absolute joy to watch work. Likewise, he’s a completely decent, down-to-earth person who’s funny as shit, and that’s going in a good way, I think.
