Teenage Fanclub return with new line-up, video – Watch

Teenage Fanclub are back after the departure of their founding bassist-singer Gerard Lovetap and there’s a bit of a new vibe to their first song ‘Everything is Falling Apart’ which you can watch the video for below. It’s a bit less jaunty than the Fannies of recent years, with lines such as “Walk, don’t run, but run from the miserablites / Who believe in no fun, unless it’s what they think is right.” Which miserablite are they talking about?

The video is shot at their recording sessions, and full of their trademark handclaps, pedal stomps and all that malarkey, while the song was recorded last month at Hamburg, Germany’s Clouds Hill Studios and features their new touring line-up of McGinley, guitarist Norman Blake, drummer Francis Macdonald, bassist David McGowan and keyboardist Euros Childs (yes, he of Gorky’s.) In a recent interview, Blake said that Teenage Fanclub are currently working on a new album — the follow up to 2016’s ‘Here’ but there’s no date (or title!) yet.
