A Lot Like Birds Release Music Video for "The Sound Of Us"
A Lot Like Birds have premiered a music video for their new track "The Sound Of Us," the second single from their forthcoming album DIVISI, which will be released on May 5th, 2017 via Equal Vision Records. Pre-orders for the album are available now and can be purchased at alotlikebirds.merchnow.com.
"This song was a way of telling a story about a couple in love that steals stars and light from all over the galaxy," lead singer Cory Lockwood shares. "Eventually their love fades, and one of them abandons the other. As he's passing alone and lost and unable to breathe, he thinks about how much of the time they spent together was in silence. He mistook that silence for peace and unspoken love when it was actually just a disconnect, and as he realizes it, he suddenly can't stand the silence around him. This song is his series of dying thoughts."
Guitarist Michael Franzino adds: "We really wanted the concept of this video to be subtle, and allow for enough room for the viewer to make their own interpretations. We wanted it to feel very uncanny/incongruent, to establish this sort of dreamlike eerie mood."
In support of the new album, A Lot Like Birds will be embarking on a North American headline tour this spring with Household, Hearts Like Lions, and OWEL. The tour kicks off in Albuquerque on April 25th, with VIP ticket packages, including an exclusive acoustic performance, available now, here: Alotlikebirds.soundrink.com.
