Having finally overcome the case of debilitating, full-band/full-body “numbness” that not only provided the narrative underpinning for their most recent but also possibly prevented them from leaving the house (much less crawling on stage and using their hands to make fretboard shapes and/or grip sticks), the mighty metal trio known as SANNHET is finally feeling enough sensation in their body parts to head out on a nice long tour of the US. They’re gonna be so out of practice!
The tour announcement brings with it a brand new music video for “Fernbeds,” off last year’s So Numb, which was one of the many reasons we named Profound Lore one of our favorite labels of 2017. The “Fernbeds” video was directed and edited in-house by SANNHET bassist AJ Annunziata, who offered the following interpretation in a press release:
The video is about performance anxiety in the pursuit of validation. The character, whose dream depicts his internal struggle between might and mercy, awakes from a stress-induced nightmare. In the grips of insomnia and anxiety, he medicates himself. In his quest to obtain purpose through accomplishment, the weight of obligation smothers him, and he ultimately dies in his sleep.
Yeesh. Heady stuff! Peep the new clip and peruse the tour dates below these thankfully-less-heady words.
