Singer-songwriter and visual artist Emma Ruth Rundle has released her new video, In My Afterlife, ahead of a North American Spring tour which starts on 24 March 2023 in Vancouver. This will be the first time she performs her latest renowned album, Engine Of Hell and the Orpheus Looking Back EP.
The video for In My Afterlife is self-directed alongside John Bradburn and visually is “an expiration of insanity, a lot of sagazan and influence from Julie Taymor’s circa 2000 film rendition of Titus,” Rundle says.
“I developed the character, makeup and costume myself, which I made by painting and modifying found articles while I was in the UK,” Rundle says. “This mask or character is supposed to represent what is left after life ends, wandering the halls of their own existence, reliving little joys and sufferings. They are a demented and unsettled character.”
Tour highlights include two nights at Los Angeles’ Masonic Lodge at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery (which are now sold out), two nights at San Francisco’s Swedish American Hall, NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge, Chicago’s Thalia Hall, Vancouver, Toronto, Boston (sold out, new date added).
Support on all dates is Japanese-American multi-instrumentalist and composer Patrick Shiroishi. For more details and tickets, visit https://www.emmaruthrundle.com/tourdates.
