Sometimes the rock star life isn’t as glamorous as it appears. Seaway are partnering with AP to premiere the video for their latest track “Blur.” In the video, the pop-punk act take fans and listeners on tour with them .
Being a touring musician has a ton of perks, after all. Musicians have the chance to tour the world. However, this time Seaway is bringing the world to their fans in this new clip.
On a tour of Europe, individual band members pose with well-known landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Berlin airport, as well quaint eateries and canals. This imagery, paired with electric tour footage, is beautiful enough to make us want to board a plane right now and not turn back.
The video for “Blur” may be breathtaking, but its lyrics are even more awe-inspiring. Seaway craft pure poetry in this subtly painful pop-punk-meets-indie track.
Though touring has several advantages, there are many hardships that arise, guitarist Andrew Eichinger says.
“The song is basically just about dealing with the crazy ride of being away from home all the time and the toll that takes on you mentally,” he says. “We love what we do, and we know how lucky we are, but sometimes it’s easy to question everything, and that’s what this is all about.”
Missing family, friends and significant others on the road is no easy task, but the band support each other on the road. In “Blur,” you can see the guys in a big group hug and having fun on and offstage.
Believe it or not, this ballad has actually been in the works for quite a while. The band started writing it the same time material was coming together for their 2017 full-length Vacation.
“When it came time to put everything together, we just felt like it didn’t fit with the rest of the songs,” Eichinger explains.
The Vacation B-side will be included on an upcoming compilation album that’s due out in 2019.
