With the release of Jolly’s new album The Audio Guide To Happiness Part II just under a month away, the band have revealed the first video and track to be taken from said record.
The Audio Guide to Happiness Part II has come to symbolize JOLLY‘s triumph over Hurricane Sandy, which left their studio in ruins and Drummer/Producer Louis Abramson homeless just weeks before its completion. Luckily the album was saved from the disaster, completed in various friends living rooms, and is being released alongside their European/U.S. tour with prog veterans Riverside.
So what better way to release the first video other than straight from the eye of the storm? JOLLY‘s new music video “Dust Nation Bleak” is filmed in the ruins of their studio, and home base. From the outside it may appear to be just another rock video in a gritty setting, but this location is what remains of JOLLY‘s birthplace, and so has deep significance to the band.
The band comments: “When God gives you lemons, make a music video. JOLLY loves you.”
