Bayside have unveiled a new track from their forthcoming album. Watch the video for “Pretty Vacant” below!

“The song ‘Pretty Vacant’ perfectly sums up the lyrical theme of the record and we really wanted to video to do the same,” says frontman Anthony Raneri. “We wanted the video to tell the story of someone having the life that they thought they knew disappear. She struggles to gain control of or at least slow down the process of losing her identity but fate is literally dragging her pasts out the door and making it disappear into thin air and there is nothing that she can do about it.”

The video was directed by Justin Giritlian and Nathan Sam. “When I was writing this record I felt like a transient and I think writing Vacancy really helped me work through an experience that I had never prepared for, let alone planned on,” continues Raneri.

Vacancy, Bayside's seventh studio album, is due out August 19 via Hopeless Records (pre order it digitally and physically now). The band will be hitting the road with the Menzingers and Sorority Noise soon. Grab tickets here!
