Circles Around The Sun & Joe Russo Release ‘When I Was At Peace’ Video
Russo and CATS tapped animator Thomas Lynch III to create the wild visual for “When I Was At Peace,” but the project was put on hold in the wake of guitarist Neal Casal’s death. Casal expressed a desire for the band to continue and now CATS decided the time was right was to put out the video.
“I was a fan of Thomas’s art and showed it to Neal,” bassist Dan Horne explained to Brooklyn Vegan, who premiered the video. “He liked it and we called him up to see if he wanted to do a poster. The poster idea ballooned into a series of posters and a video for a song we recorded with Joe Russo. But then Neal died and some time passed before I called up Thomas again and he was like ‘we’re still doing this video right?’ He finished the video, but the timing wasn’t right to release it so we thought we would save it for a better time. We recently decided this is the right time to share it.”
Circles Around The Sun Meets Joe Russo was recorded at Joe’s Brooklyn studio. The video for the EP’s “When I Was At Peace” was described by Thomas Lynch III as “a journey through the cosmos to view the creation of spacetime singularly” in a storyboard according to Brooklyn Vegan.
