Kurt Vile releases new single and video ‘Loading Zones’ & UK headline tour in November

Kurt Vile has shared a video for ‘Loading Zones’, the first new music to surface from him since 2015. Directed by Drew Saracco, the video is a paean to his native City of Brotherly Love, and a tribute to the song’s lyrics, themselves an account of Vile’s peculiar parking strategy. “I PARK FOR FREE!” Kurt proclaims, as he goes about his day moving his car from one loading zone to another, narrowly avoiding parking tickets and irate meter maids played by Kevin Corrigan (Superbad, The Departed, Goodfellas) and Matt Korvette (frontman of hardcore punk band Pissed Jeans).

Vile will hit the road later this year on an extensive global tour, with support from The Violators (Rob Laakso, Kyle Spence, and Jesse Trbovich), where fans can expect a further taste of new music in addition to the band’s iconic catalogue. Commencing October 12 in Hamburg, Germany, the tour runs through mainland Europe, before arriving in major UK cities, including two consecutive nights at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on November 6 and 7.
