Shaman's Harvest launch video for song tackling social media and depression
The Come Up by Shaman's Harvest is about people "struggling with real issues and with where we're at as a nation"
Missouri rockers Shaman's Harvest have released a video for their single The Come Up. It's taken from the band's upcoming album Red Hands, Black Deeds, the follow-up to 2014's Smokin' Hearts & Broken Guns.
The Come Up features a Motown-style backbeat attached to a strutting verse and fat, singalong chorus, while the video finds the band playing in the desert as an unseen, Tremors-style foe drags its screaming victims off into the scrub. Lyrically, the song addresses social media and depression.
"There's so much negativity on social media today," says singer Nathan Hunt. "A lot of people struggling with real issues and with where we're at as a nation.
"It's therapeutic for myself. It's just about sometimes when you just can't change shit, you got to realise you can't mould everything in your life and you kind of just have to roll with the punches."
Red Hands, Black Deeds is released this Friday, July 28. The band are currently on tour in the US supporting Nickelback (full dates below).
