After releasing their ‘Into Pieces‘ video last month, Danish sextet Alcoholic Faith Mission has debuted a new video for “Running with Insanity,” directed by Kristian Foldager. Watch the video and read frontman’s Thorben Jensen’s Q&A with Interview Magazine, as the site describes the clip as “a tale of young, failed love told through the very aesthetically pleasing medium of pretty Danish people.” “Running With Insanity” is taken from the forthcoming Ask Me This LP, out on March 27th with Old Flame Records (MillionYoung, Letting Up Despite Great Faults). The band is also excited to announce its return to North America for a spring tour following years of sold-out European sets and appearances at Reykjavík’s Iceland Airwaves, SXSW, CMW, and CMJ.

Highlighted by MTV, Brooklyn Vegan, Esquire, and New York Times, Alcoholic Faith Mission completed Ask Me This last fall with producer Tom McFall (R.E.M., Weezer, Stars). Though the members hail from Denmark, the band was actually formed in Brooklyn in 2006 by high school friends Thorben Jensen and Sune Sølund. When the pals stumbled upon Brooklyn’s Apostolic Faith Mission Church, they reasoned that alcohol was as necessary an elixir as religion is for the pious. Thus, their own Alcoholic Faith Mission came to be.
