Video: 'The Land of Hopes and Dreams'
Highlight: "We wanted a very simple but effective video that conveyed the message & mood of the song," Chris Keene, lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist tells Spinner. "We loaded up our van full of furniture that we got from Goodwill and drove down to Providence, R.I. to shoot the video outside in an old abandoned factory yard. It started pouring rain when we got there and didn't stop all night. We shot all night in the pouring rain until around 4AM. It was pretty intense, but I think it made us work harder, made us more determined to make the video happen and helped add to its overall feel."
