Following the release of their long-awaited, and critically acclaimed third album, "The Ceiling", and a short run of sold-out UK headline dates, Birmingham dream-pop group JAWS have shared a new video for their recent single "Do You Remember?".

Their third and most ambitious album yet, "The Ceiling", sees the band head back into the studio with Gethin Pearson, who also produced 2016's "Simplicity". The album represents another musical leap forward for the band, adding new textures and further honing a sound that has been theirs since their inception. 

The new video follows the band's latest singles "FEAR" and ""Please Be Kind"  as well as their propulsive 2018 single and album opener "Driving At Night", which earned plaudits from the likes of DIY, who described it as "A striking introduction to their third full-length", as well as receiving praise from The Line of Best Fit, Clash, Paste, Dork, Gigwise and featuring in Hype Machine's 10 most popular music video charts.

Speaking about the video frontman and guitarist Connor Schofield says "For the video we wanted to work with Morgan Tedd again who did the Driving At Night video, the simple meaning behind the video is that your head doesn't switch off when you close your eyes and we wanted to have a video that was constantly moving, a lot of the shots are as if you're the passenger on a journey, which ties in the meaning behind the song"

As well as the new video, JAWS also announce another UK headline tour for November 2019. The announcement follows the bands recent sold-out UK tour dates. Speaking about the reaction to the shows, Schofield says "The recent live dates were the biggest shows we'd ever done and the reaction was beyond what we'd ever expected, every night was like a celebration of the new record and what we'd achieved up until that point and now we want to take that same atmosphere to more places around the country, we really can't wait for these shows, there's a few places we haven't been to for years."

  • 15th Nov – Bristol, The Fleece
  • 16th Nov – Southampton, Engine Rooms
  • 18th Nov – Oxford, The Bullingdon
  • 19th Nov – Nottingham, Rescue Rooms
