VIDEO: YEAR OF THE LOCUSTS Release Music Video for New Single RISE UP
Hard Rock band Year of the Locust- YOTL have released the highly anticipated video for their latest single titled "Sunrise". The band is currently on tour with Starset and Palisades. The tour kicked off on January 28th in Charlotte, NC at The Underground and will conclude on March 16th in Columbus, OH.
On producing the band's latest single "Sunrise", Brian Bond says, "Most songs usually take anywhere from a day to a few weeks to write, but on very rare occasions, magic happens and one just appears. That's exactly what happened with "Sunrise". After wrapping up a long day of writing and jamming on other songs, Scotty picked up an acoustic and started strumming and singing an idea that he had. Immediately everyone's ears perked up and before you knew it all the amps were fired back up. Everyone threw out ideas that all somehow managed to work together perfectly and in less than an hour "Sunrise" was done. Magic like that rarely happens, but even rarer is working with a band that knows when something incredible has shown up and regardless of how tired and exhausted they may be, still takes full advantage of the situation."
Scotty Mac, vocalist of YOTL, adds, "The lyrics and melodies hit me like a ton of bricks... When a song is written and you are locked into a melody from the very start.. That's like a Polaroid picture. Moment captured; lighting strikes... And the smell of the burnt soil is undeniable. It sticks with you."
The video was produced and directed by Steve Sage Productions. Steve Sage said, "Working with Y.O.T.L. was an amazing experience. The guys are professionals on and off the stage. They brought my team and I a treatment and we created something beyond their expectations. This video and the next are going to kick major ass."
Year of the Locust is a motley collection of personalities from the American Northeast. Hailing from NYC, Washington Dc, and West "By God" Virginia, the band's sound has come into its own under the watchful eye of producer/guitarist Brain Bonds.
