The Fray debut new music video, announce summer tour plans

Am I the only one who was completely unaware that The Fray have a new music video out?

The video concept seems to mirror what the band’s songwriters recently described as the concept behind the song:

We kind of put it in contrast to this African concept of Sankofa. It’s basically this concept of: If your village burns down, go back to it and pick through the ashes and find anything good and then take it with you and leave and never look back. It’s like an acknowledgement of tragedy and hardship, alongside celebration, almost, and thankfulness for what you have. Kind of run as fast as you can from that black hole of guilt.

If that wasn’t enough for you, the band will be hitting the road this summer with Carolina Liar and my girl-crush, Kelly Clarkson. I can’t wait. Check out the dates below:
