Black Stone Cherry have unveiled their video for In Our Dreams, the first single taken from their forthcoming fifth studio album, Kentucky, which is set for a 1st April release via the Mascot Label Group. Check out the clip below!
The video is set in a post-apocalyptic underwater world, Hydros, ruled by a nefarious leader. While the band play, the tale unfolds of two sisters separated in this society by a class structure. They’re eventually reunited when a revolt topples the system and they escape to a new life above water.
Black Stone Cherry say:
“We’re so proud of this video as visually it’s a direction we really haven’t taken before. We wanted a powerful performance with a very unique narrative and we believe we’ve achieved it! We hope y’all enjoy!”
Drummer John Fred Young elaborates, saying:
“We wanted the video for In Our Dreams to bring the songs lyrics to life. Director Kyle Cogan helped us to forge new ground, visually. His unique sci-fi storyline of two sisters, tragically separated into two social classes in an oppressed underwater civilization run by an evil leader, accompanied the lyrics so well, and metaphorically, the story feels like it relates to current world circumstances.”
Director Kyle Cogan says:
“From concept to completion, it was a total collaboration across many disciplines. We worked with the band to create a striking narrative that would require a heavily stylized world. It was great to see the vision come alive practically on set, and through visual effects in post production.”
