Tindersticks : Tindersticks Release Video for 'Black Smoke'; Announce 2010 Dates
29th January 2010

Following the release of Falling Down A Mountain by Tindersticks on Monday comes the video to the lead single, 'Black Smoke', directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard. An MP3 of the track is still available to download from the 4AD player and by heading to previous album announcement.

The label debut from the band, Falling Down A Mountain is their eighth long-player and as the band readily admit, it shows them pushing themselves with a renewed purpose and hunger, highlighting a more colourful side and still able to spring a few surprises.
