Sacramento rock band A Lot Like Birds has premiered a brand new video for “For Shelley (Unheard),” the moving first single from their forthcoming album DIVISI, which will be released on May 5th, 2017 via Equal Vision Records. Fans can watch the video, as well as check out the track’s lyrics and a personal statement from vocalist Cory Lockwood, below. The band’s complete album pre-order options will launch today via MerchNow.
A Lot Like Birds‘ constant musical evolution and entrancing live shows, combined with their down-to-earth personalities, proved to be just the right fit for Equal Vision Records, who signed the band in 2012. “Signing to Equal Vision used to just be a daydream for most of us,” explains lead singer Cory Lockwood. “When we were growing up and still playing in previous bands, Equal Vision was putting out CDs by incredible artists that we admire like Bear vs Shark, The Fall of Troy and Circa Survive.”
“It’s so difficult to try and describe somebody this important to a crowd of people who have never met her. Even harder than that, it’s hard to explain that the reason she’s so immensely important isn’t just because she’s gone. Shelley Lockwood was the only person in my life who ever convinced me that the world was beautiful.
