Indie's fast rising band The Last Dinner Party have shared their latest single, "My Lady of Mercy".

"My Lady of Mercy" follows on from previous singles, "Nothing Matters" and "Sinner", and its video was directed by the band alongside Harv Frost and Dora Paphides.

“My Lady of Mercy is about being a girl. A girl looking up at a painting of Joan of Arc for the first time and thinking that she looks so brave and so beautiful that she wants to kiss her. And maybe she also wants to kiss the girl who stands next to her in the school choir," the band explains.

"We are expanding the world of The Last Dinner Party to encompass a darker, heavier atmosphere. The lyrics explore the anguish of a teenage crush that can only be described through the bloody, carnal language of religious experience, as the soundworld takes cues from Nine Inch Nails, PJ Harvey and Roxy Music.

The Last Dinner Party have been out on the road extensively since April’s explosive release of "Nothing Matters", packing tents at the likes of Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, Electric Picnic, Latitude, Green Man, and End of the Road.

The hotly-tipped young London band kicked off their UK headline tour in Blackpool, yesterday which stops in Glasgow, Leeds, Cardiff, and London's EartH, before concluding in Bristol on 22 October. They will be joined on these dates by London-based risers Picture Parlour.

Last week, The Last Dinner Party announced a new headline show at The Roundhouse in Camden on 1 February, which will follows the two sold-out dates at EartH. This is their biggest headline show to date, and Speedy Wunderground's Heartworms will be the support act.

Tickets for The Last Dinner Party's headline show at The Roundhouse are on sale now. For more information, visit
