Don’t take this the wrong way, but it takes a lot to get me excited. It makes me sound like a horrible music fan, but very rarely am I truly hyped on something enough that I am actually anticipating it’s release. Sure, hearing that one of my favorite bands has got an album in the works is always good news – but most of the time I won’t bother marking my calendar. It might be a bad memory, it might be laziness (or maybe I’m just terminally chill) but most of the time I’ll just end up listening to it whenever I get the chance. However, such was not the case with Run For Cover Record’s newest compilation, Mixed Signals. I was waiting for this baby to drop from the moment I saw Tigers Jaw‘s contribution to the comp was streaming on Run For Cover’s website. And I’ll tell you what, I was not disappointed. I was hyped.
Touché Amoré have released their first video ever for the song “Home Away From Here” off their upcoming full length/Deathwish Inc. debut “Parting The Sea Between Brightness And Me”. Lead singer Jeremy Bolm had this to say about the video:
“The thought of doing a music video in this day & age along with this world we’re involved in has always felt a bit odd. But after seeing some of Derek’s videos online, we got inspired. Whether anyone saw it or not, we knew it would be a good time. Derek puts together stop motion videos using still photographs and has quite the talent for piecing it all together. We brought him along for a short run of West Coast shows in April of 2011. He shot 65,000 photos for this project. The song is called “Home Away From Here” and it’s about traveling and finding comfort in the struggle of trying to survive. We wanted him to capture everything candid of what its like to tour. Driving, unloading, hanging out, playing, sleeping on floors, etc. Derek did a fantastic job!!!”
