HalfNoise, the solo project of former Paramore drummer Zac Farro, has released a music video for "Mountain." It's the lead single from his upcoming full-length, Volcano Crowe.

Farro gave fans an update with the video: "As many of you may know, I am usually a drummer. But a few years ago I decided to see what writing and recording my own music would be like, HalfNoise. I made an EP in my house with a producer (Daniel James) and did a bit of touring. However it wasn't until I played a few shows in New Zealand and spent a few months there that I really realised my passion.

In August of 2013, I went back to New Zealand and spent 7 months writing and recording the new HalfNoise album with my friend (producer) Daniel James. I wanted to experience life somewhere other than Nashville, Tenn and wanted to know how my writing would change being in such an amazing and beautiful place. I knew the trip would be exciting, but didn't know it would be as life changing for me as it was. The people I met and the places where I visited/recorded were unlike any others I'd seen before, and having toured for many years of my life I thought I had seen a lot. I wouldn't have been able to write the album I did had I not spent that time there. The album is called Volcano Crowe because we recorded the album at the bottom of a volcano and my friend Rowan Crowe was the reason I visited New Zealand in the first place." 

Zac and his brother Josh recently scrapped their band, Novel American, and began recording a new album with a new band.
