The band has the released the video for “No Crying In Baseball” ahead of the album release.
Mothers on the video: “Inspired by a series of conversations Patrick Morales [Mothers’ bassist] had with the Church of Universal Renewal, the video for ‘No Crying In Baseball’ is a reflection on our relationship with media, technology and feeling. The video follows a girl in a not too distant future surrounded by language and text instructing her on how to feel. She’s wandering, adrift in a sea of lost souls that in an honest attempt to tweeze meaningful connection have surrendered themselves to an external locus of feeling. The video is frenzied and meant to portray the often times fracturing role of media and technology in our lives reminiscent of what Marshal Macluhan had meant when he said ‘We shape our tools and thereafter our tools shape us.”
