Wowing audiences across 300 stages around the globe, Goodnight Sunrise are here to bring the experience of a soul-gripping arena rock show straight to your stereo via the video premiere of their new single “Wait For It”, which you can now watch below.
“The video for “Wait For It” was produced and directed by Erica Orofino, who shot a more abstract, psychedelic video for our recent single “One Pill.” This time around she dreamed up a more narrative and comedic approach to build on the lyrical themes in”Wait For It” of feeling pressured to follow trends and fit in” says the band. “In the video we’re asked by our “label manager” (in an Oscar-worthy performance by Stephane Tremblay) to do more and more outrageous things to try to go viral such as doing TikTok dances, selling our own cryptocurrency, and even an awkward attempt at a sexy photo shoot, but none of them bring the success he dreams of. Finally, we shed the ridiculous costumes and win him over just by being ourselves, and in doing so help him remember what it’s like to have a bit of fun again”
Founded in 2011 by Vanessa Vakharia (keytar, vocals) and David Kochberg (guitar, vocals), the band formed via their shared love of the raw power of classic rock. For fans of The Glorious Sons, Royal Blood and Metric, the band is returning to the spotlight with a new, mature soundscape. Relentless in their pursuit of honesty and exploration, they are big believers in human connection. “The world is full of light and darkness, and as we try to find balance in our own lives through music, we hope that it brings comfort to others on similar paths,” says Vakharia.
Synonymous with badassery and high-energy live performances, Goodnight Sunrise is gearing up to release their 3rd full-length album, “Against All Odds”, later this year. It is their biggest, boldest, and most commanding record yet, building on everything they’ve learned about production, arrangement, and songwriting since starting the band 10 years ago. Produced and mixed by Brian Moncarz (Our Lady Peace, The Trews, Circa Survive, Moneen), mastered by Grammy-winner Brian Lucey (Green Day, Arctic Monkeys, Elvis Costello, Ghost), and featuring bassist Duncan Coutts and drummer Jason Pierce of Our Lady Peace, the album achieves one of the band’s most longstanding goals: to capture on record the feeling of being at one of their live shows. “Against All Odds” is defined by hooky choruses, arena-sized drums, heavy guitars, ripping solos, soaring harmonies and gang vocals. Inspired sonically by Foo Fighters, The Pretty Reckless and Jimmy Eat World, Kochberg describes the album as “a salute to the rock music that inspired us, both musically and also as a voice for the misfits of the world that push back against the status quo”.
