NEW SINGLE- ‘WATCH MY MOUTH’

Check out our new single ‘Watch My Mouth’, a teaser from a forthcoming third album,which we are pretty sure is going to be called, Judas.”

‘Watch My Mouth’ was recorded between the homes of co-frontmen Brent DeBoer and Bob
Harrow. It was written by Brent while he toured during 2016 with his “other band”, The Dandy
Warhols. It was mixed in Melbourne by The Dandy’s frontman, Courtney Taylor Taylor while he
was in town on a recent Australian tour as well as Union’s engineer Fever Holmes.

This year has also seen Immigrant Union sign a new management deal with Ted and Nikki
Gardner who also manage The Brian Jonestown Massacre, amongst others.

New Music Video for ‘War is Peace’ Premiers on Huffington Post

Screen Shot 2014-10-10 at 2.11.28 pm

The video for Immigrant Union’s ‘War is Peace’ is a darkly humorous take on a fictional home shopping channel geared towards selling products to ‘global tyrants.’ Australian video director, Dale Bartlett, came up with the idea after hearing the song and discussing it’s lyrical content with Union singer, Brent DeBoer. DeBoer explained that after living in Australia for five years, he had gained new perspective on his favorite place in the world, The United States. He felt as if America was slowly committing suicide through costly and highly questionable wars that seemingly only benefit a tiny fraction the global elite, while the 99.9 percent slave away to pay their bills. Bartlett asked DeBoer if he would host a show for the video where he sold various items to these shadowy characters and he agreed. The result is DeBoer playing the character of John D. Ranged who keeps the business of selling deadly weapons and instruments of covert assassination light and entertaining for the customers who want to believe that what they are doing is okay because ‘killing is simplified.’
