You may remember back in August there was a Sovereign Sound post about how two indie bands from Colorado managed to completely devour the snobby LA music scene with killer performances at Cinespace. Well one of those bands, elctro alt rock powerhouses The Epilogues, has just released their first music video for their single “Hunting Season”- and you won’t believe your squinty music-loving eyes. The video, directed by Colorado resident Dylan Novak, bears a look of professionalism well beyond that of a first-time, low-budget, musical project. The young Novak’s undeniable talent radiates throughout the three and a half minute mini-film, as does the band’s made-for-fame theatrics. Each member looks perfectly natural in front of the lens, especially frontman Chris Heckman with his passionate gestures and sultry facial expressions. The outdoor setting for the video perfectly compliments the serenly beautiful and spooky song. Check out this masterpiece and dare to tell me you disagree.
Emo rock legends Jimmy Eat World are gearing up to release their brand new full-length album, Invented, on September 27th. The first single from the record, “My Best Theory“, is out now. It is a passionate, earnest rock tune that both retains the traditional Jimmy Eat World sound, while expanding into a new territory for the band. You can preorder the sure-to-be incredible new record now, to make sure you have it at your doorstept first thing September 27th. And if you’re a vinyl fan, you can preorder the Invented vinyl package which includes an MP3 download card.
