There are few people in the pop-punk universe (or the pop one, for that matter) who can carry melody like Jason Lancaster, brainchild of Go Radio and formerly the face of Mayday Parade. Our boy J is featured on a track by a new band, This Is All Now, and you can check out their latest music video for the single "24 Hour Nights," above, exclusively with Fuse.
This one's got a very California feel. The opening riff recalls Boys Like Girls' "The Great Escape," reminding us that being young and in love is the best feeling in the world. Taking those precious summer moments and hitting the road: That's what it's all about, right?
The band told Fuse about the video:
"From the moment we wrote and recorded this song, we knew we had to shoot a video. The idea of spending limited time with valuable people is something many people have in common. When we initially approached our director Justin about the video, we had many different ideas we had spewed out, some of them being absolutely ridiculous. Thankfully Justin being as talented as he is was able to come up with a treatment that satisfied everybody. We shot all of our scenes at a park in upstate NY where we had to hike for what seemed to be nearly a mile to get to our shoot location. On top of that we had to carryall of our gear (Yes that means the entire drum set) all the way on top of a cliff, hell of a work out! hahaha. The whole experience around shooting this video was incredible, Justin is incredibly talented and we can't wait to see where his career takes him. I hope everyone can enjoy the video as much as we have!"
Watch the "24 Hour Nights" premiere above then enjoy the best pop-punk songs we heard in June.
The tune is the first single from the band's forthcoming EP, Homecoming, due out July 7. The tune was produced by ZK Productions and is available as a free download when you pre-order the EP. Cool stuff!
