This past weekend, the video for The Dear Hunter’s Ã¢â‚¬Å“What It Means To Be AloneÃ¢â‚¬Â from their critically acclaimed ACT III: LIFE AND DEATH (Triple Crown Records) will mde its world premiere on MTV2Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“SubterraneanÃ¢â‚¬Â program. It’s currently in rotation on MTVu and has been added to MTVÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s website.
Singer/pianist/guitarist/lyricist/multi-instrumentalist Casey Crescenzo directed and produced the animated video at his home studio in Providence, RI along with Glenn Thomas of Synapse Design, who also handled the art direction, design and layout of ACT III: LIFE AND DEATHÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s packaging. Work on the video continued once the bandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s headlining tour started on September 23.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“It was very rewarding to finally parallel visuals with the audio,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Crescenzo. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We worked very hard to compliment the tone of the song and I couldn’t be more happy with the result.”
THE DEAR HUNTERÃ¢â‚¬â€Crescenzo, Andy Wildrick (guitar), Erick Serna (guitar), Nick Crescenzo (drums), Nate Patterson (bass)Ã¢â‚¬â€is currently criss-crossing the U.S. with Thursday and will start another round of headlining dates on October 25–with Annuals and Steve Brodsky (Cave In) opening–before starting up with Thrice on November 15.
