The Receiver share video for "To Battle an Island"

Midwest symphonic dream-prog duo, The Receiver, has launched a new music video for the track “To Battle an Island,” taken from its recently released full-length, All Burn, out now on Kscope. Stream the “To Battle an Island” music video, directed by M.J. Smith (, on YouTube at:

Commented vocalist/keyboardist, Casey Cooper: “I had the pleasure of jumping into freezing water wearing a hazmat suit multiple times, which gave me the sensation of being water boarded. Jesse conveniently sat that part out. Even so, working with M.J. Smith was a blast. We didn’t have anything specific in mind for the video, so he conceptualized and we all just ran with it. And I love giving other artists the chance to reinterpret our music. So while in the song I tried to make being rejected by my girlfriend sound as cool as possible, the video sort of twists and plays with that concept with the main character trying to escape the entire time. Add in a few sci-fi elements for good fun, and there you have it.”
