Manchester sonic explorers THE SPEED OF SOUND have a brand new video which they're premiering with Vive Le Rock!

'The Day The Earth Caught Fire' is taken from the band's acclaimed album Museum Of Tomorrow, described by us as 'unique and other-worldly' and out now through Big Stir Records.

"A swagger borne of artistic confidence as wah-wah guitar lines blend with the rotating speakers of the organ leading into a bouncing infectious chorus, driven forward by the always propulsive rhythm section," say the band. "Written while wild moorland fires raged in the hills around their native Manchester, The Day The Earth Caught Fire mixes the man-made horrors of climate malfunction with a joyous wake up call, encased within an alternative rock dance-anthem. All achieved while unloading The Speed Of Sound's characteristic lyrical satire and wit against both those that party as the planet burns and those unable (or unwilling) to see beyond their own narrow field of vision. The video mixes allegorical volcanic eruptions with the pervading global adhesion to raw economics and untamed greed."

Museum Of Tomorrow is available now here.
