Yard Act have share the new video for ‘100% Endurance’, which features a central appearance from acclaimed actor David Thewlis. You can watch the clip in full below.

The contemplative song is taken from the Leeds band’s debut album ‘The Overload’, which arrived in January to a five-star review from Rolling Stone UK.

The video for the track was filmed in Blackpool and sees actor David Thewlis portraying the role of a man baffled by a recent alien invasion of Earth.

Thewlis, known for roles in Fargo and as Harry Potter‘s Remus Lupin, said: ” I’ve told my agent I’m only doing Yard Act videos from now on, though next time on a tropical island or a big yacht.

Speaking about the James Slater-directed video, Yard Act frontman James Smith added: “It was great shooting this video. I barely had to do anything, and I didn’t have fake facial hair glued to me head for once. I still can’t believe David got involved.

“I was such a fan of his work from Naked through to Fargo, and when I told James Slater he was interested in working with us he was so buzzing.

“A brilliant actor, and an absolute joy to watch work. Equally so, he is a thoroughly decent, down to earth person who is funny as fuck, and that goes a fair way I reckon.”

Yard Act have also announced their biggest headline show to date at London’s O2 Kentish Town Forum, which will take place on December 1.

Tickets for that show will go on general sale at 10am on Friday (May 20) and you can buy them here.
