Video Age Announce New Album, Share Video For Title Track

Video Age have announced their new album Away From The Castle (out October 27th via Winspear) and shared the title track – a barn-burning country-tinged rocker so infectious it practically broadcasts the joy they experienced during the album’s creation. Across four albums, longtime friends and songwriting partners Ross Farbe and Ray Micarelli have gleefully worn their influences on their sleeve, writing inviting tunes that reference sounds ranging from disco to pop and indie rock. For their latest LP, they’ve thrown nostalgia out the window, embracing their own unique sense of musicality for an album that feels like Video Age distilled to its purest form. 

Inspired by sessions working on Drugdealer’s album Hiding In Plain Sight, and with Farbe further honing his production skills with artists like Esther Rose, the band decamped to a remote cabin for eight days jamming, cooking, and writing together. Joined by touring members Nick Corson and Duncan Troast, Away From The Castle is a document of a band having fun and rediscovering their love for making music together, all while making their best songs to date.

Along with the single, there is an accompanying Leo Rauf-directed video, on which Farbe says “I’ve always had a hard time focusing. I get overstimulated to the point where I can’t complete a thought. Sometimes I want to freaking unplug and drop-out. But I’m not trying to go full isolation mode. I’m just trying to get better at making quiet moments for myself.
