In April, Grammy-winning progressive bluegrass outfit The Infamous Stringdusters released their latest studio album, Rise Sun, via Time Tape Records. Andy FalcoChris PandolfiAndy HallJeremy Garrett, and Travis Book reunited with producer Billy Hume (who oversaw 2017’s Laws of Gravity) to record Rise Sun‘s 13 songs. The band has now shared a new official music video for the albums title track, “Rise Sun“.

The video was directed by Laura Goldhamer, with cinematography from Michelle Christiance, and produced by Spiral Bound Studios. “Rise Sun” opens up with an infectious hand-clapping rhythm before the quintet charges into the song with their hard-hitting vocals. The Stringdusters’ new video encompasses a variety of short clips from across Colorado, including snow-capped mountains, rivers, train tracks, the plains, herds of animals, and more. The production team also used stop-motion animation throughout the video, bringing a new light to the band’s anthemic new tune.

As director Laura Goldhamer explained,

If this motion-picture music video had a storybook moral, it would encourage us to carry forward hope, beyond cerebral logic, even without knowing where the heck we will end up. As humanity contemplates questions of its own fate on this planet as a species (deeply mired in destructive modern industry), amidst it all, we call for hope in a new day. This song begs a huge but hopeful question: Can we live together without pain?
