Canadian rockers The Damn Truth premiered the gloriously retro video for their new single ‘Tomorrow’ exclusively on Planet Rock.
The follow-up to The Damn Truth’s Planet Rock hymn “This Is Who We Are Now”, produced by “Tomorrow” by Bob Rock (Metallica, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi) is yet another dominant track from the Montreal quartet.
Directed by Ariel Levesque for I / O Studio in Montreal, the spectacular ‘Tomorrow’ video sees Lee-La Baum (vocals, guitar), Tom Shemer (guitar), PY Letellier (bass) and Dave Traina (drums) travel through different musical eras as they sing the song.
The video begins with The Damn Truth in stark black-and-white television from the early 1960s, before we are faced with an explosion of color from the late 1960s and 1970s and then transported back to the 1990s.
Watch The Damn Truth’s “Tomorrow” video:
“Working with the I / O team on the set of this video was once again an overwhelming experience,” says Lee-La Baum.
“This time around, instead of turning ourselves into Cirque du Soleil acrobats, we traveled back in time to some of our favorite musical eras. And what a trip it was! ”
Commenting on how ‘Tomorrow’ was inspired by these turbulent world times, guitarist Tom Shemer adds, “I made a conscious effort to forget the past and said, ‘F — you’ towards the future and focus on now. ”
“Tomorrow” and “This Is Who We Are Now” are taken from The Damn Truth’s third studio album “Now or Nowhere”, released in May. ‘Tomorrow’ is officially released as a single tomorrow (September 17th).
The Damn Truth UK tour in February 2022 plays four major titles and nine dates in support of Scottish blues rockers King King. Tickets are on sale now on Planet Rock Tickets.
“We can’t wait to tour the UK,” says Lee-la. “The last time we played in the UK it was a one night banger in London that left us wanting more. We can’t wait to come back and hit the road in the UK. ”
