Faintest Idea have revealed their latest video, Ouroboros, the final piece in a trio of videos that make up a short film detailing the socio-political issues faced in the UK as a result of the current Conservative government. In the final episode of the three-part series our plucky banker who featured in the first two videos has the tables turned on him as he’s dressed in The Hunt’s traditional red regalia, and chased through woodland by the band who have donned fox masks in a delicious reversal of roles. Faintest Idea have also announced a run of UK/EU tour dates and festival appearances for spring and summer.

Kings Lynn, UK street punks Faintest Idea have announced details of their upcoming full length, Increasing the Minimum Rage. The LP is the band’s third and is due for release on April 1st via TNS Records. The band have said this about the record:
“The new record sounds heavier both musically and lyrically than our previous releases…With free market capitalism still rampant things don’t look too great for the younger generation. The album is a reflection of the time we find ourselves in, it is the sound of people trying to keep hope in a seemingly bleak future.”
Check out the cover art and track list for Increasing the Minimum Rage as well as the band’s upcoming tour dates below.
