November 27, 2018 — Alt-rock duo, The Blue Stones
, debuted their highly anticipated music video today for their current hit single, “Black Holes (Solid Ground),” today exclusively via Billboard Magazine. Directed by Jason Lester and filmed in Los Angeles, CA, this is the first music video the band has released from their new LP.
“When the band told me about how their great track was an exploration of the battles we fight within ourselves, my mind went instantly to Stanley Milgram’s infamous shock experiments of the early 1960s,” says director Jason Lester. “Using the setup of his obedience tests as a jumping off point, we constructed a visual representation of the struggle with the self – a person facing their own image in a mirror, pushed to the brink by a choice that must be made.”
“Black Holes (Solid Ground)” is currently sitting at 34 on the Alternative Chart and 25 on the Mainstream Rock Chart, a feat not many artists get to claim and even fewer claim on an independent record label.
“It’s amazing how quickly everything is happening for us right now,” says the band.“Charting at both Alternative and Mainstream rock radio formats, doing a European tour alongside Welshy Arms with several sold-out dates, playing a bunch of summer festivals, and now releasing the video for our debut single – it’s a lot to take in, but we’re super grateful”
The Blue Stones recently returned home from a mostly sold out tour of Europe with Welshly Arms. The band has also confirmed their appearance at the 2019 Shaky Knees festival taking place May 3-5 in Atlanta, GA. Other notable acts include Tame Impala, Gary Clark, Jr., Interpol, Beck, Incubus, Tash Sultana, Grouplove, Cage The Elephant and many others. A return to the U.S. is planned for December with select dates alongside The Struts and Meg Myers.
