Among the biggest changes that came with leaving the label? Why, their budget, of course.
So maybe it's not a surprise, then, to hear that the band kept the production of their second music video from the new album in-house -- just as it had with its first video release from the disc, the fan-sourced "S-S-S-Saturday." This new one, for the song "Turbulence," was co-directed by Reddick and his Built by Ninjas partner Heath Balderston.
It's a nice enough clip, and one aimed at tugging on at the heart-strings. Basically, it's just what you'd expect to go with the song, which is as somber a single as the band's ever released.
And, speaking of the clip, there's a few lessons you can learn from watching it.
1.) There's no need to show death when you can imply it.
2.) Real-life bandmates tend to be awesome pay-it-forward types in fantasy worlds.
3.) No matter what you do, Ryan Hamilton and Jencey Hirunrusme of Smile Smile will always bicker.
