Silverstein, ‘On Brave Mountains We Conquer’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Subscribe to Loudwire on
Canadian rockers Silverstein released their seventh studio album ‘This Is How the Wind Shifts’ in 2013, and the band is exclusively premiering the video for their new single, ‘On Brave Mountains We Conquer,’ right here at Loudwire (watch above).
The clip follows the tale of an older man who appears agitated with a younger man and woman, but his aggravated nature takes a turn for the worst when he pulls out a videotape and proceeds to collapse to the ground. From there, the action is set in motion, but you’ll have to watch for yourself to see what happens.
Frontman Shane Told exclusively tells Loudwire, “We were excited to take a different approach this time. Working with Vulture Culture Films, who have great short film background, we wanted their vision and interpretation for the song. For us, after previously making 17 music videos that all had a performance aspect, it was cool to sit back and watch this being filmed without us in front of the lens.”
He goes on to discuss the clip’s plot as follows: “The analogy of the internal struggle of the character in the song and the character in the video makes this video unique. There’s a lot to take in from this, and I think it paints a very honest picture of the dark and uncomfortable aspects of society and family life that most entertainment is scared to touch on. It’s a statement piece that can be taken numerous ways, but it’s not something that can be viewed with any kind of light heartedness.”
‘On Brave Mountains We Conquer’ appears on Silverstein’s recent release, ‘This Is How The Wind Shifts: Addendum,’ which includes bonus tracks. Those interested in purchasing the disc may do so via iTunes.
Silverstein are currently on tour in Canada and will make their way south for a brief U.S. headlining run followed by a co-headlining trek with Blessthefall and support from The Amity Affliction, Secrets and Heartist in April and May. To see their full itinerary and to buy tickets, click here.
