From the album ‘This Is All Yours’  Alt J have revealed the gloomy new video for “Pusher,” the latest single off the band’s This Is All YoursBased on a concept by Alt-J frontman Joe Newman and brought to life by Division Paris and director Thomas Rhazi, the video features a man’s agonizing attempt to bring change to an uninformed society. “Pusher” is presented similarly to the Best Picture Oscar-winning Birdman, with the feel of one long shot cleverly divided by seamless cuts.

is a stripped-down acoustic number about love, loss and loneliness. Its central idea is that people are either pushers or pullers, and a successful relationship needs both — Newman sings of how he lacks,

the zest of a lemon, looking forward
Unless I have a woman pushing me

It also introduces the red-billed quelea, the most common bird in the world, which will reoccur throughout the album.

Pusher headed out onto the road for a relentless amount of live shows and are now looking to build on their tenacious momentum with their latest release. Hours spent holed up in their practice room, situated above a pub in their native county Yorkshire, gave birth to the new set of tracks found on 10,000 Hours. The band also had a large input in the recording process, allowing them to bottle up their anthemic, pulsating rhythms across six meandering tracks.

Thomas Hemingway (bass) and Ben Scarff (drums) complete the line-up and are a defining reason Pusher’s reputed live show is so vociferous. Utilising the advantages being a five-piece band can bring, Pusher’s huge sound has this year landed them coveted spots at both Kendal Calling and The Isle of Wight Festival, performing to busy crowds on both occasions.As the festival season has drawn to a close, Pusher are now concentrating on soon to be announced tour dates that will see their sonic brand of atmospheric music pulsating through venues around the UK. The EP’s track list as well as their currently booked dates can be found below, with more to be announced shortly (including an EP launch date).”
