Portland’s Soft Kill have announced a run of European tour dates, kicking off in the UK in October. Alongside the live shows, the band have also unveiled a brand new music video for the track ‘Trying Not To Die.’ The track is taken from their latest album, “Savior,” which was released via Profound Lore back in May.

The video was directed, shot, and edited by Samuel Gehrke. Soft Kill’s Tobias Grave comments:

“After fifty days of touring we thought it would be fitting to shoot a live video to showcase one of our favorite songs from Savior. Portland was on the itinerary for our shows with friends Harms Way and a natural choice since it’ll forever be our heart and full of a growing set of fans and friends alike. It’s also home of our wonderful friend Sam Gehrke who’s been working with us since our rebirth of sorts, years back, and the only known person to photograph us and make it look good. He was the natural choice to shoot, edit and direct the video and the experience was one of my favorites of our time as a band.”

Having already toured extensively in the USA this year in support of the new album, Soft Kill are now setting their sites on Europe. Starting in the UK, the band will also make stops in Russia, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Romania, and will wrap up in Spain. On the upcoming shows, Grave adds:

“It’s hard to describe our excitement about returning to Europe, this time to support Savior with an actual human drummer (R.I.P. that box thing). Our last run there birthed new life into this band and felt like a reward for working so hard the last few years. Can’t wait to return, see old friends and make new ones in cities we skipped last go around.”
