Influential rock band Taking Back Sunday has debuted a fiery new video for their fan favorite track “Better Homes and Gardens” today at http://smarturl.it/BetterHomesVideo. The track is featured on the band’s latest album, Happiness Is, which is on sale this week at iTunes for US$4.99 and available from Hopeless Records. The song can also be found on the recent reissue, Happiness Is: The Complete Recordings, that includes additional tracks from the studio session.
Known for their striking and imaginative videos, Taking Back Sunday’s latest is no disappointment. Directed by DJay Brawner (Panic! At The Disco, Refused) of Anthem Films, Inc and shot in Greensboro, NC, “Better Homes and Gardens” is staged around a burning house set to the band’s memorable song. For the ambitious shoot they enlisted the help of Greensboro Fire Department’s Battalion Chief Dwayne Church and a crew of recruits to help control the blaze.
“Eddie (Reyes) had this wonderful idea of watching a home burn to the soundtrack of ‘Better Homes and Gardens,'” says vocalist Adam Lazzara. “With the help of the Greensboro fire department we were able to make that happen. As I was sitting there watching the house burn, and they were running playback of the song, there couldn’t have been anything more fitting. It was very emotional.”
Taking Back Sunday is headed to the UK for a string of dates in May followed by one-off shows in the U.S. this summer, including a performance at Alternative Press’ 2015 APMAs. Follow the band at https://twitter.com/TBSOfficial for additional updates.
