Public Service Broadcasting have shared a video to accompany their new single, Go!

The track is taken from the band’s second album, The Race For Space, which was released on Test Card Recordings this week.

The band take samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material, which they fuse around their unique sound.

Following touching on themes such as The Blitz and the race to reach the top of Everest, the band have now turned to space travel, and more specifically story of the American and Soviet space race from 1957 to 1972.

Go!, which will be released on May 11, focuses on the people in the control room who made the landings possible, instead of astronauts, the more obvious heroes.

Speaking about the making of the track, frontman J. Willgoose, Esq explained: “The first time I heard the call-outs and the replies, there was such excitement and frenetic-ness to it. It was obvious to me that this was going to be a fast-paced song and it was going to be called ‘Go!’”

The band are due to play two sold out shows at the National Space Centre in Leicester on Thursday and Friday, before a UK tour in April and May, including a date at The Ritz in Manchester on April 29.
