I thought I was ready to call it a night, and then I saw this beautifully animated video for Murder By Death‘s “Lost River”.
This video for “Lost River” premiered yesterday on SPIN and is directed by O’Death’s Gabe Darling. The gorgeous and detailed animation is the perfect complement to the song’s hope-filled story of lovers separated by death. I don’t like to give too much away, so please watch it yourself to find the outcome. It’s a deeply moving song and video, and deserves your attention.
Bloomington band Murder By Death is currently on tour in support of their latest release Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon (Bloodshot Records) which caught international attention not just for its amazing content, but also its highly successful Kickstarter campaign. Having just wrapped up the European leg of the tour Murder By Death hits the states May 26th in Sacramento, CA, making their way back to the Midwest in July. And with a great excuse to leave Bloomington before the students come back, fall tour dates start August 22nd that will include support from The 4onthefloor, Larry and His Flask, My Jerusalem, Kentucky Knife Fight, and my other favorites Maps & Atlases.
PS: if that video was just too much for your emotions, there’s always this.
