Watch Lonely Dance now.
The new video follows the previously released track “Killer in the Mirror.”
“This album is going to change the game for Set It Off and we are so happy that you are along on this ride with us,” said singer Cody Carson. “Welcome to ‘Lonely Dance,’ the anthem of the introvert, where we can all be content and not feel like a freak for just wanting to stay inside where we feel at home. We’re really excited about this song and the music video accompanied with it.”
Carson elaborated further about the visual, saying, “It’s honestly my favourite music video of ours to date. As far as the concept, how can you get more isolated than space? It was an unbelievable experience to work on a set so intricate and beautiful as that spaceship and the team behind the camera were just amazing! Not only do we have Midnight coming your way in February, but we’re also headlining Part 1 of the Midnight World Tour in North America and then swiftly following it up with Part 2 in the UK/Europe! Set It Off is BACK! New single, new music video, new album, and two new tours. Let’s continue to grow this family because it’s time to take over the world together.”
Midnight demonstrates a depth and breadth of musicianship. Carson played clarinet and guitarist Dan Clermont played trumpet on the record, while the band also incorporated live strings, live horns, and a live gospel choir into the album. Midnight also includes intricate, instrumental features by Reel Big Fish’s Matt Appleton and Issues’ Skyler Accord, as well as a vocal feature by Wayfarers.
Set It Off have also announced Part II of their Midnight World Tour for UK and Europe starting next April.
