- First Aid Kit Premieres New Music Video for “Fireworks”
- Back in December, Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit released a new song "Fireworks" as the second single from their upcoming fourth studio album "Ruins".
On January 5, the duo dropped a new music video for "Fireworks", where the duo dances in high school's prom night. But the crowd connected with UFO. The mysterious video was directed by Mats Udd.
About the music video, the duo said in a statement;
"We have always loved the idea of American high school proms. It was incredible to get to recreate one in our hometown of Stockholm. Aesthetically it's such a different look from our previous video – it was fun to go full Eighties mode. We got to dress up our friends and our mom in full on retro looks. We had a blast shooting this video and found out 'Fireworks' is a great song to slow dance to."
- The new album "Ruins", including 10-track, is out on January 19th and the duo embarks the tour in support of the new album at Fox Theater in Oakland, CA on January 24th.
The tour takes place in North America, Europe and Australia through to April. Also, the duo will perform live at Coachella in Indio, CA on April 21st. Learn more about tour dates, click here.

The new album is their first LP in four years.
