Wesley Gonzalez has released Christmas single ‘Red Man Is Back Again (With A Lonely Dose Of Pain)’. It has a video, of which Gonzalez says: “It seemed obvious to visually represent an actual Red Man but what kind? Santa Claus seemed obvious, the devil too, So we decided to go for a pissed up Freddy Kruger character. He’s your bastard uncle. Danny the director and I discussed how we would approach the visuals and decided to try and go for an ambient yuletide, with little obvious references apart from referencing Christmas horror films and The Krampus, the central European goat demon who punishes children”.

Departure Lounge have announced that they will release their third album, ‘Transmeridian’, next year, nineteen years after its predecessor. Here’s their first single since their 2003 split, ‘Mercury In Retrograde’. The album is out on 26 Mar.
