To coincide with the US release of their tremendous fourth album ‘Fair Youth’, Maybeshewill have dropped a new video for track ‘Sanctuary’, which is made up of footage from last year’s mammoth tour across the world. Taking in the sights of many countries around the globe, the band have sighted it as the most ambitious tour of their lives. In a statement on the Maybeshewill website, they’ve delved a little further into the ins and outs of how the video came to be:
“Between September and the end of 2014 we toured our newest record, Fair Youth, across three continents – Europe, Asia and Australasia – making it all the way to the far side of the world. During that time we filmed whatever we saw – shows, cities, roads, landscapes – and tried to document the experiences as best we could. We dumped all that footage on to a hard drive and gave it to our good friend Fraser West from WeTheConspirators who created almost all our videos to date, as well as all the artwork for Fair Youth. He’s put together this incredible video, which completely captures how it feels like for us to have been on the road for that length of time. There is so much more that we couldn’t squeeze in to this, but we think it’s a great snap shot of how it felt to be in Maybeshewill at that particular point in our lives.”
Not quite ‘Faithfully’ by Journey, this is a breathtaking tour video. You can check it out below, and if you’ve not yet picked up Fair Youth, you really should. Available at all good retailers including iTunes, Amazon or direct from the Maybeshewill Webstore. You can also stream through Spotify or any other good streaming providers out there.
