After releasing his Flame Rave EP via Warp earlier this week, Clark has today shared a new video for formidable EP cut "To Live and Die in Grantham. "The track reminds me of my old rave days," the video's director, Christopher Hewitt, says of the tune in a press release. "Its also the perfect piece of music to convey different energy states through imagery and action," he continues. "It got me thinking about the archaic, almost tribal nature of a nightclub and how best to tie this into the track. Even though I believe we’re about to see a resurgence in archaic revival, I think as people we've kind of lost a lot of the traditions in what make us human. The rights of passage is a big one for me. The film for Clark is a modern take on that ritual, maybe a twisted take on it."

Hewitt's resulting video for Clark's "To Live and Die in Grantham" can be watched in full below, where the dates for Clark's current North American tour—which kicks off today in Athens, Georgia—can also be found.
