BANKS unveils video for new single 'Trainwreck'+UK/European/US Tour Dates

BANKS - Trainwreck
BANKS today unleashes the music video for her latest single ‘Trainwreck’, taken from her second full-length album, The Altar, out now on Virgin EMI/Harvest Records.
Continuing a tradition of unhinged visual glory, the clip, directed by Marie Schuller, excises BANKS’ unpredictable and dark sensuality as she performs in front of an old-school VHS camera for anonymous suited ghouls. It’s uncomfortably comfortable at the intersection of high fashion and David Lynchian fantasy. The music segues from ominous bass, claps, and synths into a hypnotically haunting refrain, “You thinking with your one brain, watch you decapitate. You show me all your letters and I should’ve confiscated. Put my eyes away, and I had to get away.”

The new single arrives in anticipation of BANKS’ upcoming UK dates in March, which will see her visiting Manchester, Glasgow and London, including a long sold out show at the Roundhouse on March 13th.
In the US, as well as her return to the Coachella stage on April 14th and April 21st, BANKS also today also announces a string of Spring 2017 West Coast tour dates. Check out the full live listings below.
