Cover Your Tracks unveils live video for ‘Cages’

For the last week, Cover Your Tracks has been teasing the release of their brand new music video for lead single, “Cages.” On Monday (Oct. 24), the Atlanta-based band unleashed the music video which shows the viewers what it’s like to be at one of the group’s shows. The live music video was recorded during the group’s stint on Ice Nine Kills’ recently wrapped ‘Hell in the Hallways’ fall tour.

While the song is a very catchy one, it turns out that there is a lot more to it, lyric-wise. Frontman Paul Rose revealed that the song is about the negative impact of technology on human relationships. “We could be really damaging the way we interact and not even know it,” begins Rose. “I understand how helpful it is and I’m a hundred percent for technological progress—but just like everything, there must be a balance: no good without bad, no good without evil.” Guess the technology we’ve all grown to know and “love” are in fact those cages.

Watch the video for “Cages” below.

“Cages” is featured on Cover Your Track’s debut album, Fever Dream. Fever Dream was released back in September. Like with any band who’s released a brand new record, Cover Your Track is set to hit the road once again, except this time with Failure/Anthem, Through Fire, and Letters from the Fire. The new trek kicks off tonight at the Studio @ Webster Hall and will wrap up on Nov. 9 at Davey’s Uptown in Kansas City. The complete list of tour dates can be seen below.

Ice Nine Kills to headline the ‘Hell in the Hallways’ tour

Ice Nine Kills may be wrapping up their final days on the 2016 Vans Warped Tour, but don’t expect the group to take a massive break right after. On Wednesday (Aug. 3), the Massachusetts-based band unveiled plans to head out on the “Hell in the Hallways” tour. The fall tour, named after their latest single, will be sponsored by Alternative Press and will feature performances by Secrets, Sylar, Cover Your Tracks, and Out Came The Wolves.

“Following up our run on Warped Tour with a US headlining tour is exactly what the INK fans need,” explains vocalist Spencer Charnas. “With the theme of this tour directly relating to our last Carrie-inspired music video, this will be more than just a show, it will be an experience.”

“We’re really excited to be presenting the ‘Hell in the Hallways’ tour with this roster of great bands,” begins Alternative Press CEO and founder Mike Shea. “This is going to be a pretty crazy tour! We’ve seen Ice Nice Kills just blow up this summer on Warped and these shows are going to be hot, packed and loud!”

The across-country tour will kick off on Sept. 9 at Lost Horizon in Syracuse, NY and will wrap up a little over a month later on Oct. 16 at Champs in Lemoyne, PA. VIP tickets for the tour will go on sale beginning Friday, Aug. 5 while general admission tickets will go on sale Monday, Aug. 8.
