share”Here With The Hawk” video ft. Michael Horse
Dead Meadow will be releasing their new album, The Nothing They Need, this Friday 30th March via Xemu Records.
The band has shared a jaw-dropping video, directed by Simon Chan, for album track “Here With The Hawk,” which features stop-motion animation, and actor Michael Horse (who plays the character of Deputy Hawk in David Lynch’s beloved Twin Peaks) sitting down for a cup of coffee with the band. Culture Collide premiered the video, saying “‘Here with the Hawk’ is perhaps Dead Meadow at their most focused: 3 minutes of one stoned-to-the-bone 70s rock riff, fuzzed out into space and back, and adorned with a shimmering cloak of guitar noise and Simon’s subdued vocals.”
While Dead Meadow met in and around Washington, D.C.’s punk/indie scene, the trio draws more of its sound from such classic rock legends as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Black Sabbath. The trio formed in the fall of 1998 and their widely-acclaimed self-titled debut album was released in 1999. Within a relatively short period, the D.C. trio received offers to tour with everyone from local D.C. acts like The Make-Up and Fugazi to psychedelic rockers Brian Jonestown Massacre.
What has followed since are seven studio albums – three via Matador Records, Shivering King and Others (2003), Feathers (2005), and Old Growth (2008) – two live albums which includes Three Kings, a feature length live film and soundtrack and more tours across the USA and Europe than the band can count. And while the person behind the drum kit has changed over the years, the core of Dead Meadow – Jason and Steve – have continued to play together throughout. Since 2007 they have been based in Los Angeles.
