New Madrid spent the better part of 2014 touring in support of their sophomore record Sunswimmer, but apparently they haven’t gotten quite enough of the road. They’ve just announced an extensive series of dates, including many with supergroup Diamond Rugs, and just in time for the tour the band has released a music video for Sunswimmer track “Forest Gum.” The band worked with Athens-based visual artist Michael Siporin Levine to create the video, sticking to the concepts that inspired much of the music itself.

“We approached the video like we have approached a lot of our music to this point: letting the subconscious do the work,” said Phil McGill. “Shirking the need to attach a deliberate meaning. A stream of consciousness, just engaging and grabbing on to things that feel good and feel right.”
