ARTISTdirect is thrilled to partner with Lullwater to premiere their video for "Albatross," from their new self-titled album, out today via Dinobird Records [iTunes link]. This video is FUCKING awesome. Trust us.
About "Albatross," John Strickland told ARTISTdirect, "I wrote that song out of all the frustrations a band goes through. The character in the song, Maralene, is a metaphor for all of the shit we as musicians have put up with. So, we knew when it came time to make this video that there had to be a 'Maralene' and basically we were going to be getting our asses kicked, but we wanted to do it in a very comical way and we want people to be entertained watching this video."
[Editor's Note: Mission accomplished.]
He continued, "The video needed a great director, someone who not only got the song itself and our vision but would bring their own creative ideas to the table. Jason Thrasher is a very well known and respected director in Athens, Georgia. He has worked with some awesome bands and we knew after the first meeting he was our guy for this project. He immediately got the concept and the idea that this needed to be over the top outrageous. So everything you see in the video from Brett getting absolutely pummeled in the mud to John getting beat the hell up in a bar actually happened. Jason and his team just nailed this video for us and we couldn't be happier with the end results."
Did you LOVE this video as much as we did?
