WATCH: Destroyer Presents Unique Tour Document For “foolssong”

In mid-February, when Dan Bejar and the Destroyer live band embarked on their North American tour in support of his new album Have We Met practically no one anticipated what the next month would hold. Shot on the road by directors David Galloway & David Ehrenreich, the music video for “foolssong” presents scenes from a caravan forced to accelerate as the world comes to a screeching halt. Watch it below…

Galloway & Ehrenreich on “foolssong”:

Snow Day. At this very peculiar time, the expression “Have We Met” deserves a question mark less than ever. We likely haven’t met anyone new since March, and the cadence of this statement is more of an absolute than an actual inquiry.

The tour got cancelled. We were making a film. Maybe we still are, it’s hard to tell, though. “foolssong” is what’s left of that for now.

foolssong” is a lullaby, it’s the painted book cover of a sinister romantic novel, and it’s our second favourite song on the album.

Packing up mid-stride and pushing through North America to find solace in quarantine is a pretty foreign experience.

With any luck, these alien landscapes provide only a temporary snapshot of an unfamiliar world, a glimpse into a future that denotes self-separation, isolation, but on the bright side, maybe a little bit more wonder.

Hopefully this is a picture that does not dry.
