After a triumphant festival season which has seen Public Service Broadcastingplaying to packed stages and tents across the UK, the duo return this Autumn with single “Night Mail”, the stand-out track from their critically-acclaimed debut album “Inform – Educate – Entertain”.
As well as the new single the band have also confirmed that a DVD edition of the album will be released on the same day, November 4th 2013. Forming the backbone of “Inform – Educate – Entertain The DVD” are original films edited by the band and their collaborators for each track of the album. Previously these films were only screened when the duo played live, but after many fan requests, and a few cryptic hints, the band have now confirmed the release of their video material.
The DVD also features numerous extras, including short films shot on the road with the band, live at Village Underground in London, and in conversation with Time Outat the BFI’s head office, amongst others, plus an insightful audio commentary from J. Willgoose, Esq who talks through the ideas and stories which lie behind each track.
