The Vagabond tour comes in celebration of the track’s official music video.“It’s turned out to be kind of ironic that the lyrics of Vagabond mention this idea that “nowhere feels like home”, which was originally a reference to constantly being on the move when we were touring … But after the last year of being unable to tour and travel, there were a lot of times when our actual homes didn’t really feel like home either, because where we really wanted to be was out travelling the world and playing shows! We are so psyched to finally shake the rust off and get back on the road after what will have been 16 months away from doing what we love most. We’ll be hitting some of those little pockets of the East Coast that we don’t get out to as often, as well as some spots that we’ve never been out to before.” says drummer Daniel Furnari.
The music video was inspired by iconic movies like Mad Max, Star Wars, Dune and Priscilla Queen of the Desert and the aesthetics of festivals like Burning Man and Rainbow Serpent. It was entirely shot in natural locations.
“This video has been a long time in the making and is probably the most ambitious visual project we’ve ever worked on. When we first considered doing a video for Vagabond we knew that the vibrant sunny attitude of the song’s chorus was something we wanted to reflect in the visuals – something a lot brighter than what we’d normally go for. The name of the song and the sound of the intro guitar motif had always inspired desert imagery for us so we began the concept focusing more on the visual ideas we wanted to accomplish, with the narrative then forming naturally around those images and elements of the song’s lyrics.” says vocalist/bassist, Jake Steinhauser.
The Vagabond Tour kicks off on June 10th and will be supported by Brisbane post-hardcore band, Deadlights. Catch all the details below.
