Following the release of their highly acclaimed second LP The Underside Of Power, Algiers have unveiled an incendiary new video for album centrepiece ‘Cleveland’.

Interlaced with the principles of the Black Panthers’ Ten-Point Program, the video sees frontman and lyricist Franklin James Fisher between Staten Island and the Pink Houses project in East New York, where Eric Garner and Akai Gurley were killed at the hands of New York City Police Department, while the lyrics summon Kindra Chapman, Andre Jones, Lennon Lacy, Sandra Bland, Roosevelt Pernell, Keith Warren and Alfred Wright, similarly victims of state sanctioned violence, making for a powerful and uncompromising message of resistance and defiance as well as a life-affirming tribute. Fisher also met the family of Eric Garner to open a conversation on future support for the community.
