Failure Share Video for ‘Hot Traveler’
Failure, the well-loved but mostly under the radar alt-rock band that broke up in 1997 only to reunite last year, aren't wasting any time in putting out new material since their revival.
During this year's SXSW, the band debuted a new song called "Hot Traveler" -- off forthcoming album The Heart is a Monster, due on June 30 -- and now they've shared the brand-new video for the song.
The video – which shows the band playing in a large warehouse or hangar – is a thoroughly minimalist affair shot in dark greys and blues as cameras rotate around the band on a track and photographers snap photos in the background. As the video goes on, the light starts to stretch and flair, but gently.
After putting out an EP of new music during last year's tour with Tool, Failure used the first part of this year to debut "Hot Traveler" and another new song, "Mulholland Dr.," as well as announce a summer tour in support of The Heart is a Monster that kicks off on July 2.
