We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Radiator King’s new music video for their song “Ghost Dance” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s latest album A Hollow Triumph After All, which is available for purchase through Bandcamp.
The video for “Ghost Dance” displays the proclaimed “Madness that shook the earth,” through black and white, found footage of “us vs. them” brutality on the Western frontier. Radiator King’s deep, raspy breaths light a fire under the lyrics (“We are dancing on the rim of the world”) that run across the screen, frantically scrawled in a manner befitting the tracks dissonant, uneasy tone.
A Hollow Triumph After All is a genre-bending album, combining folk-punk, anthemic rock & roll, and indie-Americana with the somber yet celebratory spirit of a New Orleans funeral second line. Featuring Brian Viglione (Dresden Dolls, NIN, Violent Femmes) and Franz Nicolay (The Hold Steady, World/Inferno Friendship Society) and channeling Tom Waits and Springsteen’s Nebraska, A Hollow Triumph After All, is a celebration of a life well-lived, all the while acknowledging the harsh truth that we’re born to die.
