“First off we are so stoked to finally announce we have started working with Word Is Bond Inc.; Erick and the team have been amazing and we’re looking forward to what the future holds with them,” says Rain Check.
“As far as the new single goes, the writing process for ‘Distant’ was much different than when we recorded our EP. Some of us are living in different places around Texas so we basically wrote the song in pieces and didn’t hear it in full til we finished recording. Luke at Blackroom Studios is always a pleasure to work with and he helped immensely with getting the song done in the time frame we had. It’s a different song than what we’ve done before but we’re excited for people to hear it.”
The band comments on the video: “The video was inspired by the music video for ‘Guardian’ by Tigers Jaw. The video is just clips of them hanging out in the studio while they were recording their most recent record. We thought it would be fun to do something similar and have someone just hang out with is in the studio and capture us being ourselves. Brandon did a great job and the video came out great.”
