Front man DAVE BAYLEY said the music video for the new track is “a love letter to live music and the culture and togetherness surrounding it.”
“It was filmed at the peak of the lockdown in my neighbourhood in East London by the lovely people who live around me, just using their phones,” Bayley said in a press release.
“These are people who are usually out at shows, in galleries, going to cinemas etc. These venues are left empty now, and many of them will not survive. The song is about loss and longing, and ultimately realising you are unable to save something… and this video is about that but for art, being together, and human contact.”
He continued: “Huge love and thank you’s to everyone who got involved and helped out… When everyone was leaning out of their windows filming, I felt that same sense of togetherness and spine-tingling energy that happened at live shows. It made the coldness of performing to an empty room with the band stuck on screens feel even more heart-breaking.”
DREAMLAND was originally slated for the 10th July. However, out of respect and support for the Black Lives Matter movement, the band recently postponed the album’s release date to 7th August.
