Hogarth unveil ‘lit’ video for “Directed”

To celebrate the band’s spring tour, Montpelier’s Hogarth surprised fans today with a brand new song and video, “Directed.” Shot and edited by Errick Easterday of Easterdaily, the video is set in a dark room, completely lit by clear Christmas lights. One could say it was “lit.”

“The concept of the song is about someone, or people who try to put the blame on someone else when clearly they are in the wrong for something they did,” said drummer Travis Scriba. “We recorded the video with our long time friend Errick Easterday, and it was a blast. Errick is very creative and we are incredibly stoked with his work.”

Hogarth embarked on their spring tour yesterday, kicking off near the band’s hometown in Marion, Indiana. Tonight, they’re performing their second show at the House of Representatives in Normal, Illinois. Don’t miss the band at a date near you, check out the tour poster below.

“It’s the first thing people heard from us as a band. It was intended to set the stage for what we wanted, and we couldn’t be happier with it,” he said.

Almond explains: “The video was so much fun to do, especially working with Justin. He made the awkward process of a camera in your face feel easy and natural to us. He was super helpful in making sure we didn’t look uncomfortable or awkward, especially the parts where it’s just me, staring at the camera. We’d be sitting in a little, dark room with the song playing off of a camera, and I’d have to sing, full volume, to everyone. But, we were able to laugh at ourselves and enjoy it. Although we kept the mood light, Justin made sure we got the vibe of the song across, which was super important to me.

Almond shared an update about the band’s upcoming schedule, stating that their EP is finished and they are currently waiting for the master tracks.

“We’d like to throw it around to some labels, but aren’t going to put off releasing it for long because we’re label hungry. I couldn’t be more excited for it. Hopefully, a new single is to come soon,” he said.
