Clap Clap Riot have released their video for "It’s Alright" and announced rescheduled tour dates for 2022.

Produced and directed by Karlie Fisher and Sacha Stejko, the video concept came over a coffee and conversation at Auckland’s Fed Deli.

“It was about my own interpretation of the lyrics of the song, fear about the climate, the flooding that was happening, covid lockdowns, claustrophobia and anxiety,” says "It’s Alright" video director, Karlie Fisher.

“The amazing DOP Sacha Stejko and I wanted to keep the look really simple but create beautiful shapes with the plastic in a lovely organic way as a bit of a reframe of what Steve would actually be singing about,” continues Fisher.

“On a cold Sunday morning in 2008, a band walked into The Lab and woke everyone in the room up. It was, of course, the boys from Clap Clap Riot.

We go all the way back to that first morning and have been creating music videos on and off since then, which is why when I say things like 'I'm thinking of covering you in plastic to create a feeling of anxiety they just nod.”

Clap Clap Riot have also announced rescheduled dates for their tour, which has been postponed a second time due to COVD restrictions and alert levels. The tour now kicks off in Wellington at Meow on Friday, February 4, 2022. Auckland’s Whammy Bar is next on Saturday, February 5. The following week they head south to Christuchrch’s Blue Smoke on Friday, February 11 and finally to Dunedin’s Dive Bar on Saturday, February 12, 2022.
