Villagers are previewing 'Passing a Message', a track from their forthcoming album, {Awayland}, with an accompanying lyric-based video directed by Billy Pilgrim. You can watch it now, just down the page, and it's available for purchase from iTunes now HERE.

{Awayland} is the much anticipated follow-up to Villagers' Mercury Award-nominated and Ivor Novello-winning debut, Becoming a Jackal. Released on 14th January 2013, {Awayland} can be pre-ordered HERE.

Villagers are currently on a UK and European tour with Grizzly Bear, and played a one-off headline show at the Borderline in London last week which earned them a 5* live review in the Independent – "as tonight progresses, it is clear that {Awayland} will be a very special album indeed".

And here's that video for 'Passing a Message':

The band play two headline shows in Ireland next month (including a sold-out show in Dublin) and will be back to the UK for a headline tour next February. Full dates with ticket links are as follows:
