L.S. Dunes Share New Video For “Grey Veins”
L.S. Dunes have shared a new video for “Grey Veins”, a track off the band’s album, Past Lives. The “Grey Veins” video features the band as soldiers battling forces greater than themselves while orchestrating a miniature war for Earth’s survival. The fantastical trip was helmed by noted director, David Brodsky (August Burns Red, Helmet, Cannibal Corpse), who previously worked with L.S. Dunes on the video for their first single, Permanent Rebellion. Past Lives was produced by Will Yip (Turnstile, Code Orange, Tigers Jaw).
Frank Iero on the Grey Veins video: “I’ve always said that if I couldn’t be in a band the only other thing I would want to do is to make monster movies. It’s been my dream ever since I was a little, and it was the thing my dad and I bonded over. From an early age music and monsters is just something that went hand in hand for me. (Japanese film genre) Kaiju is something I have been fascinated by ever since I was a kid and I have always wanted to do an homage to that art form in a music video. I love that L.S. Dunes is such an open minded and inspiring collective of artists that allowed me to chase that idea and make that dream a reality. Grey Veins felt like the perfect song to pair with this concept and so when the time came I knew David and Allie at My Good Eye, our frequent collaborators, were the perfect match to bring this to fruition.”
L.S. Dunes recently announced an extensive run of new summer tour dates across North America beginning with five dates on the Sad Summer Festival tour: Jacksonville, and Clearwater FL, on July 6 and 7, Alpharetta, GA on July 8, Portsmouth, VA on July 11 and Baltimore, MD on July 12. The acclaimed post-hardcore band’s headline tour begins July 9 with a show at the Basement East in Nashville, TN., and is set to hit topflight venues such as The Opera House in Toronto on July 13, NYC’s Irving Plaza on July 17, Saint Andrew’s Hall in Detroit on July 22, Portland’s Crystal Ballroom on August 1, and The Showbox in Seattle on August 2, before returning to California for a string of shows that include The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on August 6, The Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco August 9 and The Garden Amphitheatre in Garden Grove, CA on August 11.
After the shock of the pandemic shutdown, the close friends and mutual admirers urgently realized that ‘tomorrow’ is not promised. “We never knew if we would ever get to play these songs together; in fact, none of us lifelong musicians really knew if we’d ever be able to play music for a live audience ever again,” Iero recounts. “Permanent Rebellion is about taking back what is rightfully yours,” Rule added. “We wanted to do something where you can hear all our bands in it and yet, not have it sound like any one in particular. Our roots are punk rock and hardcore, and the vibe is hope for all the lost souls.”
