Patrick Watson Shares New Video

Patrick Watson releases video and announces more tour dates

Today, Patrick Watson shares the new video for “Blackwind” off 2012’s ‘Adventures In Your Own Backyard’. The “Blackwind” video was born out of a video-making competition run by creative group Genaro in partnership with the band. Filmmaker Chloe Poirier-Sauve’s beautifully well-crafted and fantastical entry was selected as the official video. Patrick Watson says, “It struck us as more than a music video: it stands on its own as a work of art.” The band will play several special orchestral shows in Europe starting next week and be accompanied by trumpeter David Carbonneau and violinist Melanie Belair for a majority of the upcoming tour. Earlier this week, the band was also announced to perform at the 2013 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival! A full list of tour dates is below.
