After battling the British blizzards, rescheduling shows and still packing out arenas across the country, including a star-studded show at London’s O2, Scissor Sisters finished their UK tour at Bournemouth BIC on Thursday. The mesmerizingly surreal and explicit video for live show and album closer ‘Invisible Light’ also made it’s way onto the web last week.

Speaking on the video, as well as the adverse weather conditions that plagued the tour, Scissor Sisters said:

“It is with triumph and joy that we Scissor Sisters bid ta-ta to our British fans and friends. To say that we enjoyed our UK tour is a massive understatement: we have played our best, looked our best, and were blessed with the best audiences of our career. A huge THANK YOU to all who braved the elements (especially our Glaswegian sisters) and told the snow to sod off – and encouragement to all citizens of the UK to call your local council and MPs and have them invest some money in a snow plough or two. Take it from us New Yorkers: a little snow is nothing to be afraid of, just an opportunity to show off your shoveling skills!

But seriously, our British fans are second-to-none, and we are so proud and happy to call the United Queendom our spiritual home. Thank you and here’s to 2011: may it be the best year of all our lives!

In parting, we leave your fair shores with an offering of our latest, and we think, greatest song and video off ‘Night Work’: ‘Invisible Light’. It is a magical trip down the rabbit hole, and we think the video made by Spanish auteurs Canada gives the song a wicked little spin. Enjoy!”

‘Invisible Light’ is the closing track from Scissor Sisters’ third album ‘Night Work’ which was released in May on Polydor. Created by Barcelona-based film makers Canada, both the band and director have declined to explain the meaning of the video, instead leaving it up to fans to decipher the dream-like wonderworld captured in the 4 minute clip.

Scissor Sisters kick off 2011 supporting Lady Gaga on her US tour throughout February and March. They will be announcing further plans for the UK over the next few months, but for now we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
