CROWS Reveal Video For ‘Chain Of Being’

CrowsCrows today announced details of a UK headlining tour and reveal the dark, subversive video for “Chain Of Being”. Front man James says of the track:

“I’ve a strong emotional link with this song. It is talking about the similarly strong emotional link people have with religion and how many use it as a crutch to not deal with their problems or feelings and instead blindly leaving everything up to a higher power.

I understand of course that religion for some people is a source of peace but what I dislike is how religion can in turn also prey on their vulnerabilities.”

The video’s creative director Veronique Charlotte says of the video’s that it is “an abstract translation of a soul intoxicated by today’s society that finds the re-evocation of itself from torment and pressure from what has been imposed and not taught, from what has been decided and not chosen.

My intention is to communicate a transfiguration of a conscious awareness.”

The band were announced as the latest signing to Balley Records (IDLES, Heavy Lungs, Lice) last month and will deliver their long-awaited debut album “Silver Tongues” on March 22nd. The first single “Chain Of Being” has already been made Lamacq’s Livener on 6 Music and saw the band featured as Jack Saunder’s Next Wave last week on his Radio 1 show.

April 26th – Limerick, Kasbah Social Club
April 27th – Dublin, The Sound House
April 29th – Glasgow, Blue Arrow
April 30th – Leeds, Oporto
