Von Hertzen Brothers have shared the video for the title track of their forthcoming new album, New Day Rising.
The follow up to the band’s 2013 album Nine Lives, New Day Rising is the Von Hertzen’s sixth studio album and is scheduled for release on the 23rd of March via Spinefarm.
The video was directed by the band’s guitarist Kie von Hertzen.
Says frontman Mikko von Hertzen: “Whenever we plan a video for a song, Kie is the first person we turn to. This is the sixth video he himself has done for the band. This time he had the idea of making a simple band video. He visited countless locations before choosing a beautiful spot on an island, just outside mainland Helsinki. The island itself used to be a fortress in the many wars we as a nation have suffered.
“The song ‘New Day Rising’ is about leaving a place for good in search for happiness and a more fulfilling life. The boats floating by are actually going to different countries; Sweden and Estonia. They are also places where many Finnish people go to let out some steam and party. In essence, the boats you see on the video give the illusion of a better life. In fact these boats never stop going back and forth. As we humans often do.”
