Dear Seattle are bringing in 2022 with the reveal of a brand new music video for their latest single Way Out. Fresh from the track snagging a coveted full rotation add on triple j, the band perform their impassioned and memorable new cut set to the backdrop of a homely lounge room.
Speaking more on the video, Dear Seattle frontman Brae Fisher shares:
“We wanted to strip things right back to the core of Dear Seattle on this video. All we wanted was to play in a room together again. It’s something we’ve missed for so long, and to be able to come together again like that was special so we hope people can feel that with us.”
The Australian rock favourites are also announcing a slew of rescheduled dates for their NSW shows today.
“Despite having the tour pulled out from us a second time the week of, we haven’t let it dampen our spirits,” Brae adds. “If anything it’s made us more eager to blow the head off it when these shows finally happen.”
Marking the band’s first time playing a headline tour since selling out their 2019 Don’t Let Go album run, Dear Seattle will now play an extensive run of shows around the country throughout February and March.
Crunchy and memorable, Way Out finds Brae deep-diving into themes like codependency and resentment building in a relationship lacking honest communication and personal space. In the same vein as their 2021 In My Head release, Way Out finds the band heading in a more nuanced and mature musical direction, while still holding true to the classic Dear Seattle chant-along choruses and emotionally-charged storytelling heard on their previous releases.
On this note, Dear Seattle fans should stay closely tuned to the band’s socials as they soon prepare to announce details of their sophomore full-length album.
