Dave Monks releases “The Rules” music video, announces Lord Huron dates
All Signs Point To Yes is the first solo release from Tokyo Police Club bandleader Dave Monks. Made up of six songs, the EP was released this summer via Dine Alone Records and is available for purchase now on iTunes.
Dave has now shared his second music video from the EP for the track “The Rules.” Premiering on Paste today, the video was directed by Chris Schoonover who described the creative process by saying, “When we started working on this video, Dave and I had discussed a few different story lines, but nothing seemed quite right. Since the album shoot was 60’s inspired, we decided to look at promotional music videos from that time. Most of them are b-roll, live shows and footage from recording dates slapped together. We decided to go in that direction, but with a performance cut in to hold it all together. It was important to us that Dave act like himself in this video. I think one can see all the different types of Dave: Good times Dave, Stylish Dave, Pensive Dave, Musical Dave, and Dad-joke Dave. The video makes you want to hang out with Dave Monks in an undetermined location and time.”
Monks will join Los Angeles-based Lord Huron for a run of shows, dates below.
