Premiere: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds unveil ‘Do the Damage’ video

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds unveil ‘Do the Damage’

Roller derby-ing clip backs the ‘In The Heat of The Moment’ single.

DIY is delighted to be bringing you the batshit, rollerblading new video from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

The new clip backs ‘Do the Damage’, a recently unveiled companion to the ‘In The Heat of The Moment’ single, which leads second album ‘Chasing Yesterday’, out 2nd March 2015.

With the track lending a grittier bite to recent Noel material, this new clip offers a similarly wild direction swerve. Mike Bruce directs the video - he was also behind the lens for every video lifted from Noel’s debut album - pitting ‘Do the Damage’ in the heart of a neon pink roller derby.

The video’s filmed at the all-female LA Derby Dolls in Westlake LA, beginning with a modest needle on wax shot before being thrown into the centre of a bubblegum-blowing, circuit racing melee. Noel makes the odd appearance, watching from a distance as chaos ensues.

Speaking previously about ‘Chasing Yesterday’, Noel said: “It was a major pain in the arse. It’s not that I’ve ever had people telling me what to write or what direction to go in, but managing sessions from one end of the week to the other proved extremely difficult. I had all these people looking at me and saying: ‘right, what are we doing today?’ I was making the whole thing up as I went along.”
