The Lemon Twigs - New Video For 'Never In My Arms, Always In My Heart'
The Lemon Twigs : New Video For 'Never In My Arms, Always In My Heart'
15th November 2018

Today, The Lemon Twigs reveal the new video for 'Never In My Arms, Always In My Heart' from their critically acclaimed new album Go To School.  The video was shot on Long Island and directed by Michael D’Addario, who also stars in the video, & Winston H. Case.  Filmed inside a local Hicksville bar the video tells the heartbreaking tale of one couple’s struggle.  In discussing the video, Michael said, “Brian and I played in a whole lot of Long Island bars growing up, and man, we met a lot of people like this.  Sometimes the Long Island mothers would gossip and you’d hear a sad story like this one, and somebody would end up with a tattoo that said ‘Never In My Arms, Always In My Heart.’  A weekend in Hicksville.

Watch the video, premiering via NPR, below:

In October, the band made their debut performance on Later…. With Jools Holland and in September they performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The Lemon Twigs just wrapped a tour of the UK and Europe with the Arctic Monkeys and the first leg of their North American tour.  The second leg of their North American tour kicks off on 12th January in Montreal.  Recent shows in London saw the band "greeted with rapture" (The Times) and Clash praised, “The Lemon Twigs are one of the most flamboyant, outrageous, stylish, leg-kicking, arm-flailing experiences in modern rock music."  See the full list of tour dates below.

Go To School, released earlier this year tells the coming-of-age story of Shane, a pure of heart chimpanzee raised as a human boy.  Todd Rundgren and the D’Addarios’ mother Susan Hall play Shane’s parents.  The album also features contributions from Jody Stephens (Big Star) and their father Ronnie D’Addario.

"Playful, addictive" - Consequence of Sound
"A sunny, psych-neighboring tune... exhibits a sort of jangly, jumpy rock, its ties to The Beatles readily discernible" - Paste
"A rich wall of sound, all intricately arranged orchestration and sublime, multi-layered harmonies, you’re left swooning to a gorgeous swoop of lush instrumentation" - Q
