HIGH TONE SON OF A BITCH: watch “Monuments To Ruins” video!
About the “Live at the Hallowed Halls” album, guitarist Paul Kott comments: “In making Live at the Hallowed Halls we wanted to avoid just making another live stream performance. There’s something very different about being in a club sweating it out with your peers, and feeling the energy in the room as the band pours it all out and soaks in what the crowd is giving back in return. What we wanted to do is something you just can’t do on tour: hang out and play in collaboration with our friends, do versions of our songs in ways we wouldn’t be able to bring on the road. I jokingly referred to what we were going for as a psychedelic doom Hee Haw. For the visual part, we didn’t want just static cameras but an immersive multi-camera feel with a lot of handheld shots. The lighting and visuals were meant to be a low-budget acid trip inspired by the Panos Cosmatos movie Mandy. Given the circumstances, it’s kinda crazy we actually pulled this thing off! It was a lot of fun, and the unique direction of the collaborations makes this a really special performance.”
