ARTISTdirect and alt rockers Skytown Riot have teamed up to premiere their video for "The Afterglow" from the Soul or System EP, out November 19.
About the video, the band said, "For this music video, we partnered up with one of Knoxville's most talented filmmakers, Jacob Boyd. And much like the writing and recording process for the single, the video came together quite organically, with one idea leading to another as we were shooting." The band finished, "One of the challenges in making this video, aside from having a zero-dollar budget, was finding the right twist. First we had to figure out what the song meant to us; and not surprisingly, we each relate to it in different ways. Ultimately the idea that we ran with for the video is the feeling of relationship captivity. Feeling trapped in a relationship is miserable. Recognizing that you've managed to become the captor can feel even worse. In many ways, this is a love story. But sometimes when you love someone you have to let them go, and face the consequences of the decisions you've made."
With all that awesome "set up" and detail in mind, enjoy the video. We did!
Enjoy the video!
