WATCH // Bishop Allen “Why I Had To Go” Via Billboard Premiere, Tour Dates Start 8/16



Two weeks out from the release of Lights Out, Bishop Allen is back with a video for “Why I Had to Go” the second single off the new album via Billboard premiere. The video directors Chad Smith and Bishop Allen’s Justin Rice chose hula-hooping not only because the song is about (to quote the lyrics), “the endless repetition of an action,” but also because it gave people something mesmerizing and all-consuming to focus on, which meant they weren’t self-conscious in front of the camera.  The goal was to capture natural expressions of innate personality, and to do it in slow motion. Watch the entrancing video above or here on YouTube / Vevo.

Pre-order the new album Lights Out via SC Distribution for the deluxe bundle which includes limited-edition white vinyl, a CD, downloads, + a hand-screened glow-in-the-dark poster. You can also get the album on iTunes, Amazon, or at your local record store.

The band plays Kingston on the 16th and Boston on the 20th before returning to Brooklyn for their record release show at Glasslands on August 21st to start off the first of many tour dates supporting the new album. More dates will be announced soon.
