Devour The Day is launching a Kickstarter campaign to help fund and create the music video for the yet-to-be-determined second single from the band's debut disc, Time And Pressure. The group is asking fans to donate money to the campaign, then record a 10-to-15-second video telling why they support Devour The Day and email the video to the band via its website. All the clips will then be used in the final music video. Anyone who donates $5,000 will get a special performance from the group in their own home.
The music video will be produced by Neighborhood Film Company, a production company that mentors and employs adults in recovery through the process of filmmaking.
Devour The Day's co-founders, bassist Joey Walser and singer/drummer Blake Allison, were previously members of the group Egypt Central.
Walser told us that starting over with a whole different name and sound has been a great experience for the duo: "We just got to a place where we didn't want to be stifled by being quote-unquote active rock or hard rock or alternative or whatever. We kind of just wanted to take the opportunity to really just kind of start over. And as an artist and creatively, you know, you really hope for that opportunity. You don't always get it. But we really took some risks that we have not ever taken on this record, and it's unbelievably fulfilling."
Devour The Day cracked the Active Rock Top 10 this week with "Good Man," the first single from Time And Pressure.
The group is currently on the road with Hinder and Candlebox and will follow that up with a run in November alongside Trapt. The group performs Tuesday night (October 15th) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
