Emmy The Great and Tim Wheeler return with new single & Xmas dates
Story by Jack Foley
THEY’RE back! To deck the halls with boughs of holly! With zombies!
Having released one of last Christmas’s most popular albums Emmy The Great and Tim Wheeler return to mark the festive season with the release of a single – Zombie Christmas.
Zombie Christmas is taken from This Is Christmas, offering a much needed antidote to the usual sentimental warblings that clutter the charts around Christmas.
The video clip – “a terrifying short film in 3 acts” – takes its inspiration from such classic zombie movies as Dawn Of The Dead…. and Shaun Of The Dead.
It’s Christmas Eve and Sleigher (Emmy, Tim and co) are playing a secret gig when they find themselves in the midst of a zombie invasion.
Armed with an assortment of customised Christmas decorations they must save Christmas once and for all and kick those zombies back to hell.
The video includes some famous faces too – Robert Emms (War Horse, Mirror Mirror, Kick Ass 2), David Fynn (Game of Thrones, Pete Vs Life, Life’s Too Short) and Bill Milner (X-Men: First Class, Son Of Rambow).
Zombie Christmas will be available digitally from December 17. This Is Christmas is available on CD and via iTunes now with a very special limited edition vinyl to come.
Emmy and Tim will spread some Xmas cheer around the UK with a clutch of dates too.
Tickets go on sale from 9am on Friday, November 2 and the dates are as follows (all December 2012):
17 – Glasgow, Oran Mor
19 – Manchester, Deaf Institute
20 – London, Scala
