The Hidden Cameras - Year of the Spawn Artwork
Friends from Germany and the UK: did you know that you can already per-order the CD version of “AGE” via Amazon (UK, DE)? Everybody else: “AGE” audio snippets are available over at iTunes. But who really likes snippets? Exactly! Listen to our next single “Year of the Spawn” below. The song premiered earlier today at Q Magazine, and there’ll be a new music video directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matt Wolf very soon.

What else is news? Our last music video for “Gay Goth Scene” has won yet another award. Director Kai Stänicke received the 1st price of the jury at short film competition “Bilderbeben” in Bielefeld last weekend.

And while we’re still working on a full tour, we can now confirm a second Canada show: The Hidden Cameras will be playing Starlight Social Club in Waterloo, ON in February, tickets are on sale now! We’ll also play London’s Bush Hall London in January, and you can get tickets for this UK show, too!

“Gay Goth Scene” is finally here! While the video itself has its online premiere in various countries – watch it at, Clash Magazine, and Exclaim! – the digital single is out now on iTunes.

In case the short film isn’t available in your  country due to geoblocking (sorry about that, it’ll be available on Monday for everyone to watch!), here’s something to make up for that: a free download of Noblesse Oblige’s remix of  “Origin:Orphan”.

Hope you like what you see (and hear)! Let us know what you think by using #GayGothScene on TwitterFacebook, or wherever hashtags work these days.
