Everest: 'Ownerless' Video


With their new album Ownerless debuting on Billboard's Top 100 "Heatseekers" chart (their highest-rated album debut to date), ATO Records band Everest has just premiered the album's first video. Drawn from the title track from the album, the "Ownerless" video made its world premiere on The Onion's AV Club. Check it out below.

"The first thing that came to mind for inspiration when listening to the song was this image of endless driving highway at night. That and black-and-white," says director Adam Littke from directing duo The General Assembly. "The song has such a distinct mood that just sounded like ominous film noir to us. Out of that we sought to communicate the idea of escaping the trappings of the comfortable modern world and heading out into the vast freedom of nature." Singer/guitarist Russ Pollard adds, "What I love most about this video is the sense of confusion, and much like the new album, its imagery is left to the interpretation of the viewer/listener. Nothing is over-served or forced, and it's darn pretty too."

The band is currently on tour this month with Alberta Cross and will be hitting the road again in November alongside Neil Young & Crazy Horse, with Los Lobos and Patti Smith on select dates. See their itinerary below the video.
