White Denim, who released their new album Stiff to great acclaim last week, have announced a run of UK shows which will see the band performing at Manchester’s Ritz on 7 October.

To coincide with the news, the gropu has also shared the video for their single Ha Ha Ha Ha (Yeah).  The video comes after the track was added to the BBC 6 Music A-list alongside Had 2 Know (Personal) and Holda You (I’m Psycho), and  epitomises frontman James Petralli’s vision of a “high heat, high energy, good times record” with a suitably Texan aesthetic and a cowboy who sports all the moves.

“When we initially heard the song, we envisioned a choreographed dance,” says the video’s director, Jonatán López. “Around the same time, we’d been watching deleted scenes from Jackie Chan’s golden era, and somehow those deleted scenes led us to a particular one with John Travolta from Urban Cowboy. We muted the video, played the song, and thought, ‘yeah, this is it.’ Travolta was relentless. He kept trying to nail the dance take after take, and we loved that energy. So we built a video around that moment.”
