The debut release No Bad Days from BESTiE! just dropped last week. In celebration of the record, the band has released a new video for the album track, Foolish Hearts, which premiered earlier this morning and can be viewed above.
The video for Foolish Hearts was shot by the band and directed by lead singer Tristan Orchard – a Gemini-nominated filmmaker whose documentaries have aired on Bravo! Television and has had various short films featured at festivals around the world. Filmed with only a $300 budget, the video was created on the spur of the moment, inspired and improvised after one of the band member’s grandmothers passed away and an unusual snowfall hit Vancouver the next morning, prompting the shoot.
BESTiE will also be hitting the road this May with tour dates. In line with the tour, the band will be giving away a 3-song download to concertgoers. Fans in Kelowna, Calgary, Saskatoon, Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Victoria who tweet, Instagram or Facebook post an image of their concert ticket with the hashtag, #nobaddaystour, will receive a download of two unreleased tracks and the album’s single, Asleep On The Bus.
No Bad Days is an 8-track pop-rock record full of danceable beats and catchy melodies. The album features the singles Pineapple and Asleep on the Bus, which were recorded at Greenhouse Studios with producer, Digory Smallz. The remaining 6 songs were recorded at Monarch Studios and The Menagerie with producer Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, Said The Whale, New Pornographers, Mother Mother, and the Zolas).
