The Steepwater Band Premiere Music Video for "Hard As Stone"

The Steepwater Band, a blaring rock 'n' roll group from the windy city has released a new music video for their song "Hard As Stone (2015)". It was shot and edited by Jon Richey of VUture Visions and filmed at Crushtone Studios in Cleveland, OH where the band recorded the song with platinum producer Jim Wirt (IncubusFionna Apple, Buffalo Killers). The unique "behind the scenes" footage gives fans an inside look into the song making process. Check it out now at Relix.

"Hard As Stone (2015)" is a new recording of an old fan favorite and will be on Diamond Days: The Best of The Steepwater Band 2006-2014, a "best of" collection that also features eight remastered tracks and a new song called "Silver Lining". The record will be released digitally and on CD via Sun Pedal Recordings (Warner Music Group) on 2/17. A vinyl release is scheduled in April of 2015 and all three are currently available for pre-order along with limited merch that is exclusive to this release.

"'Hard As Stone' is an older tune of ours that we pumped some new life into with the new re-recorded version," says vocalist/guitarist Jeff Massey. "Lyrically, its about dealing with loss, whether it be a relationship, a death, or just rolling with change, in general. It's a song that always stood out for us as a band, mainly because our music is generally a heavier blues based sound. 'Hard As Stone' is stylistically a bit different than our other material. The song opened up new doors and possibilities for our music." 

"Silver Lining" and "Hard As Stone (2015)" will be the first studio recordings with the band's newest member, guitarist Eric Saylors. The "best of" will be a sneak peek of the group's new sound before they release a brand new full-length album next year.
