They’re also sharing the video for ‘Take Me Avalon I’m Young’.

Fresh off of the release of ninth album ‘9’ last month, Pond have announced that they’ll be heading over for a UK and European tour next year, and they’re sharing the official video for ‘Take Me Avalon I’m Young’ to celebrate.

Speaking on the new video, Nick Allbrook states, “Turns out my medieval history degree is still lingering in the back streets of my mind. The final resting place of Arthur, the mythic isles where we could go for peace and prosperity but which turns out to be an expensive grey grind. A sense of wonder becomes more and more slippery as the years go by. I’m actually really proud of this tune.”

Accompanied by a video shot in the seaside town of Hastings and directed by award-winning filmmaker and creative director Bunny Kinney, Nick adds, “This was, no joke, the most fun video I’ve ever been a part of. I spent two days rushing around Hastings with my dear friend Bunny and the lovely George, Joe and James Beatty, running, swimming, shooting, fencing and playing terrible basketball. It was a dream come true. The freezing sunrise yoga was magical in retrospect, even if I was a brat at the time (sorry Bunny). A perfect seaside weekend; I got to play, and Bunny got to create an ode to his favorite sport, the modern pentathlon. Massive thanks to Lewis and Steph for their patience and kindness as my instructors.”
