The video sees the band compete against Olympic medal winner Nile Wilson, whom you might recognise from the Rio 2016 Olympics, amongst other Team GB gymnasts. The band comments on making the video:
Luke is a good friend of ours who’s a gymnast. He and I were driving to town one day and we had the idea of crossing our two worlds over. As a band, we liked the idea of making the ‘Throw Ourselves On’ video a jokey one and wanted to go as slapstick as we could with it. It was all done in-house: we put the story together, our friend Woody filmed and edited it and Rob, our manager, made his directing debut.
Marsicans, are long time friends from school and the Leeds music scene. Although Marsicans have been around for a couple of years, the current line up has only been recording and playing together since 2014 when they released their debut EP The Chivalry.
Marsicans have come a long way since supporting then up-and-coming Catfish & The Bottlemen at a small venue in Wakefield. The last 1 1/2 years have seen Marsicans play sold-out shows in Leeds, London, Manchester, Sheffield and Lincoln, plus European dates, and a Glastonbury performance.
Marsicans toured the UK and Europe extensively last year to support the release of their Absence EP. After touring with Jaws in November, they will head out back on the road in March 2018. Tour dates can be found below.
