Following the release of their second album The Underside Of Power, Algiers have unveiled an powerful 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, who self-directed the video with Sam Campbell, 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 Police Department.
