The band’s publicist, Tony Bonyata of Pavement PR, said in a press release that the band will set up additional dates.

Their new video, for “Someday Our Love Will Sell Us Out,” is a quite somber one, featuring Lowery in a hooded sweater and the rest of the band playing at various scenic places. The video carefully reflects the ballad’s mood as Lowery hides his face slightly as he conveys the mix of sadness, defeat and honesty in the lyrics. After a mix of location shots and driving sequences, the video ends (interestingly) at a port-a-potty. While that last image could have reflected the sobriety of the track, Jonathan Segel steps out of the commode with a bit of a smile and offering a rousing thumbs-up.

The video is available on CVB’s Youtube channel:
