Saves The Day Deranged and Desperate

Saves The Day have released a new music video for the song "Deranged and Desperate" from their forthcoming album Daybreak, due out on September 13th.

"For me, 'Deranged & Desperate' is about longing to be at peace with who you are," remarked lead singer Chris Conley. "In a complicated world where we are under pressure to succeed, sometimes we lose ourselves trying to prove to our parents and peers that we are worthy and without fault.

"The video paints a picture of our ability to overcome the pressures of the world by showing children in adult clothing holding morose drawings and then dropping the drawings and shedding the clothes to reveal colorful kid attire and smiling faces. It was inspiring working with Penta, and his gift of clear vision helped create a beautiful visual interpretation of the song."

Director Stephen Penta added, "I wanted the Deranged and Desperate video to reflect the feeling of losing your way but finding it again, so I set out collecting drawings from artist friends. The concept was to have adults create drawings using only 'childlike' materials, but to have all the themes deal with specifically 'adult' aspects of their personal lives, or directly with lines and themes from the Saves the Day lyrical catalog. There was something that just seemed a perfect fit pairing the imagery of kids, forced into adult clothes, throwing away their adult stress and getting back to their natural childlike state."

Saves The Day & Bayside have also just added two New York City shows to their upcoming fall co-headlining US tour at Irving Plaza on November 15th & 16th. The tour kicks off on October 6th in Philadelphia, making stops in 31 cities across the United States.
