Thursday unveils 'Magnets Caught In a Metal Heart' video, tour dates

From Secret Service PR:

Watch “Magnets Caught in a Metal Heart” here.

Inspired by artist Mia Pearlman’s cover art for No Devolución, Thursday reached out to British artists Davy and Kristin McGuire, who specialize in film, theater and performance art, to capture the album’s innovative artwork and translate “Magnets Caught in a Metal Heart” to video. Haunting paper cut forests, a mysterious metropolis and an eerie train set the scene for a dark and foreboding video that’s both conceptually and visually stunning.
“Magnets Caught in a Metal Heart” is the first single from Thursday’s recently released sixth studio album, No Devolución. The album has received mass critical acclaim with AVClub.com declaring it “isn’t a return to form for Thursday; it’s a searing, scarring reinvention,” and Star-Ledger exclaiming “No Devolución is the group’s bravest departure.”
