The Notwist announce North American tour, release video for "Kong" into the world

Once, there was a band called The Notwist. Great news: there’s still a band called The Notwist! It’s just been a little while since we’ve heard from them, what with their last album, The Devil, You + Me, having been released in 2008. But the long-running German electronic-but-formerly-metal band recently broke their silence with a new record titled Close to the Glass (TMT Review), out now through Sub Pop. Now, any good businessperson knows you don’t release a new album and not tour. By that measure, The Notwist are fantastic businessmen, as they’re got a quite extensive itinerary of both European and North American dates in the pipeline.

All this talk about touring and new records has got me thinking about gigantic apes. Sorry, my brain works in strange ways. That said, it’s all working out in a logical fashion, since The Notwist have released a new video for Close to the Glass track “Kong.” Watch that right here or below:
