watch Tovarish’s new video for “Silver and Lead”
Providence experimental doomers Tovarish released their new album If the War Comes Tomorrow earlier this year on Argonauta Records (order yours), and we’re now premiering the video for “Silver and Lead,” which was directed by David Brenner (Gridfailure) and matches the desolate-sounding song with dark, grainy footage. The band tells us:
“Silver And Lead” is about the struggle between the haves and the have-nots. Those with the money (silver) are able to maintain their power through suppression (lead). That suppression allows them to amass further wealth and the cycle continues as the have-nots struggle just to survive. This song is the inner turmoil and struggle we must face in our daily lives, trying to fight against those that would grind us down. This video, deftly created by Gridfailure, perfectly conveys that anguished panic and rage that we, the have-nots, endure every single day.
Tovarish have regional tour dates TBA for 2020. Watch their new video and stream the full album (which features vocals on two songs by Jamie Myers of Sabbath Assembly) below…
