Riverside Posts "Celebrity Touch" Music Video

Poland's progressive rockers Riverside have released a music video for "Celebrity Touch," the first single off their fifth studio album "Shrine of New Generation Slaves."

"'Celebrity Touch' reflects the times we live in," says Riverside's Mariusz Duda. "I think everyone has a deep need to feel important somehow, but unfortunately, this need is rarely satisfied. Of course some people do get the chance, mostly people connected with the so-called celebrity world. This is a story about someone who satisfied this feeling a bit too much and about the band that chose to play away from the galleries with shitty works."

Directed by Mateusz Winkiel of Mania Studio, the video can be seen in the YouTube player available below. "Shrine of New Generation Slaves" will be available in North America on February 5th, 2013 via InsideOut Music.

In support of the album, following a full European tour, Riverside will be playing a handful of shows in North America with label-mates Jolly. A full list of dates can be seen after the jump.

Decent enough for a "rock single" (note: I could only handle about 30 trite seconds of the video). Catchy too. Minutes on, after one play the hooks are still resonating.

It seems like a departure from the last two albums, (a good thing) but nothing like their first two full-lengths or either EP, which were all strong efforts. Looking forward to hearing more...
