Gomez the BandGomez debut new video, photo contest and release US tourdates, including Austin City Limits Festival.

Those charming, witty UK lads, Gomez, released the video for the song “Options”, directed by Thibault Debaveye, (creative director at Psyop, who has frequently collaborated with Michel Gondry amongst others), and it’s quite entertaining, really brings the songplot to the front.

They’re also coming to the states, but sorry, mostly West Coast dates, except for an appearance at Austin City Limits Fest. So if you know anyone in those parts, see itinerary below.

Gomez – Options

Gomez is launching a photo contest through Instagr.am in conjunction with US tour this Friday in Kansas City. The contest runs through the October 5th concert in Los Angeles and is open to Gomez fans across the globe. Just snap some photos at the Gomez shows you attend and tag your photos with #gomez and #thecityyouattended (e.g. #Boston, #NYC, #Sydney).

Their house photographer, Olly Peacock, will select one photo from each show as the shot of the day, which will be posted across the Facebook and Twitter pages. Grand Prize winner gets an autographed Deluxe Package and a pair of tickets to any non-festival Gomez show of their choice.

Find Gomez on instragr.am @gomeztheband or view the photos online here.
