New Generationals! Music for Your Truck!

Listen to the band's second single, "Breaking Your Silence", taken from their forthcoming album, Reader as Detective, and get your day rollin'.

When talking about their latest music video vocalist/guitarist/great guy/hilarious emailer Grant Widmer shared –

"I dreamt of a day when we could make our music and blast it into the vast wilderness, void of people and their pettiness and fighting. So we made a video with this in mind, as a love letter to our true, pure audience: horses and trees."

Director Spencer Kelly adds,

"When the Generationals team came to me with the concept of the piece, I knew there was loads of potential to explore the various levels to it. It’s a music video within a music video in a way. So my main goal was finding the proper balance of telling two stories within one frame. Placing the ad truck in the countryside was intriguing enough on its own, but it was finding little ways to bring the world around it alive that was the fun part."

Reader As Detective arrives July 19th. Students of an analog school actualized in a digital medium, Grant Widmer and Ted Joyner dug into new methods of creation with longtime collaborator Dan Black. Pre-order a limited edition 180-Gram Color-in-Color from the Polyvinyl Store and perhaps a giant truck bumping Gens tunes will deliver it to your doorstep.

In addition to a killer video Generationals have also announced that their upcoming US tour dates will be supported by the likes of Pure Bathing Culture, Double Double Whammy's Gemma, and Neighbor Lady. Full list of dates below – tickets onsale now.
