The band has a new album, Seconds Late for the Brighton Line, coming from ROIR tomorrow,  5 October.The Dots also have a lengthy North American tour scheduled (dates below the jump) to promote the new record as well as to celebrate their 30 years of musical expression. New Yorkers can catch the group with the Dresden Dolls at Irving Plaza in NYC on Halloween. Today, we bring you the video premiere of the moody “Hauptbahnhof”, which highlights the dark, Krautrock, classical influence in the Dot’s work.
