Band of Horses Energizes a Live Video with ‘Knock Knock’
The group ‘Band of Horses’ has added a lot of energy to a live video. They achieved this with the help of ‘Knock Knock’ which the band recorded for their new single at the Pink Garter Theater in Jackson Hole (Wyoming). Originally from South Carolina-by-way-of-the-Pacific-Northwest, they have built a strong reputation for mesmerizing live performances. It was clear that the ‘Funeral’ rockers were more than able to prove their metal during a raucous show which was held at the Metro in Chicago. They were kicking of this year’s Lollapalooza Festival.
- No holds barred: During the show they unleashed some songs from their forthcoming 2nd major label album ‘Mirage Rock’. Some of the tracks they performed include ‘Dumpster World’, ‘Slow Cruel Hands of Time’ and ‘everything’s Gonna be done’. Of course the climax was their swinging new single titled ‘Knock Knock’.
That song featured a new live video which the band shot during rehearsals at the Pink Garter Theater. The band ripped through the stomping number while they were bathed in blue lights. The infectious energy that we have come to associate with their performances was there for all to see and the full house responded in kind.
A real treat for the fans
You can now order a limited-edition deluxe version of the album. It will come out on the 18th of September this year and includes five bonus tracks. They have also added some exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the band with their producer Glyn Johns as they worked on the studio sessions. BOH are currently on tour with ‘My Morning Jacket’. However the group is expected to play alongside the Neil Young & Crazy Horse, the Foo Fighters as well as the Black Keys and K’Naan when they participate at the upcoming anti-poverty Global Festival.
The charity event will be held in Central Park (New York) on the 29th of September. The band then moves onto to a Railroad Revival Tour with Willie Nelson and Jamey Johnston in October. During this unique trip they will bring 16 1940s vintage rail cars across the nation as they perform open-air shows during the series of pop-up concerts. They will be in parks and fields as well as paying particular attention to railroad tracks. The video clip below shows just how much work ‘Band of Horses’ have put into their live performances:
