Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of "The Lying Eyes of Miss Erray," the new music video from I the Mighty.
The track is from the band's new album, Connector, which was released June 2 via Equal Vision Records.
"We teamed up with director Raul Gonzo to create something weird, fun and loosely based on the lyrical storyline—hoping to capture the feeling of being stuck in a strange dream," says I the Mighty vocalist Brent Walsh.
"Shot in all one take, I’m following this girl from room to room, captivated by her presence but never actually getting to see her face until the very end. It was a lot of fun to make and I almost broke every time I saw the boys acting all dazed and vacant eyed with their food props."
Connector is a musical journey of epic proportions—from its atmospheric scene-setting opener ("An Epilogue as a Prologue") to its ethereal but emphatic final track ("The Frame I: Betrayal in the Watchtower").
"We never sat down and had the talk about, 'What type of record do we want to make? What direction do we want to take this band?,'" Walsh adds. "To be honest, we never have. We simply wrote a bunch of songs, picked our favorites and made the record we wanted to make."
Connector was produced by Mike Green (Paramore, Pierce The Veil, All Time Low) in Los Angeles, where the band split studio time between Green's studio and the Madden Brothers Studio.
