Premiering earlier today at The Fader, it’s the new Exitmusic video for “The Modern Age” off the recently released album, Passage. Directed by Daniel Ryan, the haunting video came out of a very real life experience both Aleksa and Devon share. Aleksa says, “Devon and I spent a few years volunteering at wild life rescue centers and, despite all the best efforts of very knowledgeable and compassionate staff members, sometimes an animal would just die from the shock of being captured. Their bodies would shut down because they knew they were not free. It has always stayed with us. That’s where we got the idea for the video.” Watch “The Modern Age” above.
Exitmusic will head out on tour this fall, playing shows across North America and eventually heading to Europe. You’ll find tour dates and ticket links HERE.
