Currently coming off their North American tour supporting Mastodon and Gojira, Lorna Shore has released a new video for “Welcome Back, O’ Sleeping Dreamer”, the opening track from their 2022 album Pain Remains. The video was directed and edited by Eric Richter and produced by Paul Henon//Midvessel.
Adam De Micco (guitar) comments on the song and video:
‘Welcome Back O’ Sleeping Dreamer’ is a song that we feel deserves as much of the light as any other song on ‘Pain Remains’. It was a pivotal song in the writing process – it was the song to get the momentum going for the rest of the record. It was the song that we had the most enjoyment writing and I think to this day is probably one of our favorite songs on the record. It’s as dark as it is light and it’s as intense while not being overbearing. It has become the closest thing to balance as far as our songs are concerned. It is also a song that encapsulates a lot of who we are as a band while being unique from the rest of the songs on ‘Pain Remains’.
Working with Eric was something that we have been wanting to do for some time now. He has always been someone we would reference or were inspired by so it only made sense to do a video with him. It was also a unique experience for us this time because we were in the trenches with him making decisions on everything regarding the video. As an artist you want to see your vision come to light and working with Eric this way, we were able to bring that vision forward.
To coincide with the video launch, new “Welcome Back, O’ Sleeping Dreamer”-themed merch, two exclusive Halloween designs, and more have also been released on the band’s website.
Lorna Shore will be returning to Europe this November/December for a headlining tour, featuring Rivers of Nihil, Ingested, and Distant as support.
