The Antlers to tour

The Antlers have released a second music video from their 2009 breakout album Hospice. The video for “Bear,” shot in the bleak and snowy forest of… um… Bear Mountain, features beautiful cinematography and fantastical imagery, offering a perfect visual complement to the song’s moving lyrics. Rife with metaphors, despite the video’s initial dreariness, “Bear” maintains some of the same themes of hope that we saw in the bands’ video for “Two.” Pitchfork is hosting the premiere of the Evan Owen Dennis-directed clip right now.

The Antlers just kicked off a tour with UK band Editors, which will run through the end of February. After that the band will be at SXSW, and then head out on a headlining US tour in April and May with Saratoga Springs duo Phantogram. The Antlers are also supporting The National on the June leg of their North American tour. Full dates are below.
