THE RECEIVER DEBUTS “TO BATTLE AN ISLAND” MUSIC VIDEO, ANNOUNCES COLOSSAL U.S. HEADLINING TOUR
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Midwest symphonic dream-prog duo, The Receiver, has launched a new music video for the track “To Battle an Island,” taken from its recently released full-length, All Burn, out now on Kscope. Stream the “To Battle an Island” music video, directed by M.J. Smith above.
Commented vocalist/keyboardist, Casey Cooper: “I had the pleasure of jumping into freezing water wearing a hazmat suit multiple times, which gave me the sensation of being water boarded. Jesse conveniently sat that part out. Even so, working with M.J. Smith was a blast. We didn't have anything specific in mind for the video, so he conceptualized and we all just ran with it. And I love giving other artists the chance to reinterpret our music. So while in the song I tried to make being rejected by my girlfriend sound as cool as possible, the video sort of twists and plays with that concept with the main character trying to escape the entire time. Add in a few sci-fi elements for good fun, and there you have it.”
In addition to the music video, The Receiver has also announced an extensive U.S. headlining tour, set to kick off this month.
A full list of confirmed tour dates can be seen at http://www.thereceivermusic.com/shows/ - the tour starts in Columbus Ohio on 13th February and runs through to 23rd July with more being added
