Video: BRAVESTATION – Western Thrills

June 26, 2012

Bandcamp / Facebook / Twitter

In further buildup for their upcoming Giants & Dreamers album release, today Toronto’s BRAVESTATION released a new video for track Western Thrills. This song is the third of three free pre-released tracks in anticipation of the album release on July 10th – you can check out their video for track Signs Of The Civilized here.

Filmed by prominent Toronto videographers Woods and Wires and directed by guitarist Derek Wilson, the Western Thrills video follows a tribe of hooded children as they travel through the forest in a somewhat ritualistic manner, with plenty of BRAVESTATION imagery throughout. Eventually the band makes an appearance playing the song and wowing us with their studly good looks.

Enjoy the video, and head over to the band’s Bandcamp to download Western Thrills for free – along with Signs Of The Civilized and Tides Of The Summitand we’ll see you at the album release show on July 7th!
