Napoleon Announce U.K. Tour, Share Video For ‘Different Skin’

Last week Exeter-based hardcore outfit Napoleon released Newborn Mind, an album brimming with equal parts raw intensity, heavy melodies, and endless passion. Today, the foursome have dropped a new video for that LP’s latest single, ‘Different Skin’. If you’ve seen a hardcore video in the last, say, 20 years, than the idea of a band performing in a room superimposed with political imagery is about as familiar as a killer guitar riff. But it’s the song’s brevity, those few quiet moments, that really deliver on the message. Watch it below.

In addition to the video, Napoleon has also outlined an upcoming tour of the U.K. and Europe. After select dates in June, the band will spend all of August zigzagging across Britain, where they’ll share the stage with Essex’s own Create To Inspire. Peep the full itinerary below.
