The not-as-ginger-as-they-should-be guys and gals of The Parson Red Heads joined forces with local label Arena Rock way back in April of this year. The result of this union is Yearling, the band's first LP as Portlanders (previous homes include Los Angeles and Eugene) which will be out on August 16. A new video usually accompanies a new album, and the Parsons have one to share with you for their first single, “Seven Years Ago.”
Although it seems to be primarily filmed in Oregon City (our favorite destination), the scenery here could be almost anywhere in the country and it's the sort of footage of everyday America that Chevy loves to use in truck commercials (scored by John Cougar Cougar Cougar Mellancamp). This our country. Or something like that.
The Parson Red Heads release show will be at Mississippi Studios on Friday, August 19.
