Americana band The Brothers Comatose take their music to go in the new video for their single 'Gone Gone Gone'. It's premiering exclusively with Holler. Watch below.
In the video, the band - Ben Morrison (guitar, vocals), Alex Morrison (banjo, vocals), Scott Padden (bass, vocals), Philip Brezina (violin), and Greg Fleischut (mandolin) - horse around in the woods, performing the song while riding on cars and even a little red wagon.
The jaunty song shows off the band's warm harmonies and playful spirit, as well as the way they nod to tradition while making it their own. "From the album, Dave Dudley and the Willis Brothers were huge inspirations", said Alex Morrison. "Also, the lonesome outlaw tunes of Merle Haggard beckoned in the background as well".
'Gone Gone Gone' marks the third single from the five-piece string band's forthcoming studio album, When It All Falls Apart. They've previously shared 'Soft & Blue' and 'Too Many Places'.
Morrison explained the inspiration for the song's subject matter. "This song is an homage to the compilation album 20 Truck Driving Hits that our band stumbled across at a Goodwill store in the middle of nowhere, back in our early touring days", he said. "We would listen to it all the time!"
He added, "Somewhere in the 1970s, there existed a glorious sub-genre of country and bluegrass music, entirely dedicated to the truck driving profession. We as musicians related to this lifestyle more than any other. So, it really sung to our hearts!"
The band recently launched a new weekly video series called “Ear Snacks.” They post a new video of a cover song or tune that's inspired them each week. Thus far, they've covered the Rolling Stones, Faces, a traditional Mongolian folk song, Stealers Wheel and more.
When It All Falls Apart is slated for an early 2022 release via Swamp Jam Records.
