New Release & Video: Father John Misty – Things It Would Have Been Helpful To Know Before The Revolution

Father John Misty has this week unveiled a stunner of a new video, for his thought-provoking track Things It Would Have Been Helpful To Know Before The Revolution, taken from his latest record Pure Comedy

Directed by Chris Hopewell, the song‘s apocalyptic themes and subtle humour are captured brilliantly throughout the video, which was constructed and filmed in three weeks at Jacknife Studios in Bristol
