New York City’s Infinity Shred have released (via Heavy Blog is Heavy) an official clip for their latest single, “Long May You Run,” which comes off their new LP, Forever, A Fast Life, set for release on August 23rd through their new home at 3DOT Recordings (owned and ran by Periphery).
Regarding the video (stream it at the end of this post), programmer Damon Hardjowirogo says:
Historically, Infinity Shred music videos have been an excuse to make cheeky short films with a sci-fi bent. With the art direction for our new album, Forever, A Fast Life, leaning more personal than we had been willing to in the past we thought what better time than now to finally do a performance based video that would give us a chance to show off our new lights we built for our tour with Astronoid.
Our art directors, Dean Marcial and Esther Kim decided to shoot this video entirely on a cellphone and we couldn’t be happier with the results.
Heavy Blog’s Eden Kupermintz adds:
Taking a more intimate approach, this video (filmed entirely on cellphones) gives the band a chance to showcase their personalities and playing styles instead of enigmatic imagery. This creates a further connection between the listener and the music, building bridges of not only aural but also visual empathy between us and the band. The end result is simply a massive joy to listen to and to experience. It’s one of these tracks that just make your heart feel larger and that’s everything I’ve come to expect from Infinity Shred.
