Indochine: Black City Parade

A clip's recently  been released for the title track from Indochine's most recent album Black City parade.

Indochine have this year shown that even bands that have been around for a few years can remain relevant artistically, critically and commercially.

The album Black City Parade, the band's 12th album, was released in February  and it reached number one in France.

Memoria preceded it as a single, the song College Boy being released in May. That song caused considerable controversy on account of its video, the homophobic violence portrayed in it resulting in a ban from daytime television, its release coinciding with the debate about equal marriage in France.

The new video was shot in New York and was directed by photographer Richard Kern.

Indochine have been touring extensively this year, with more dates resuming at Zénith sized venues around France later this month and into next year. They play at the Stade de France in June 2014.
