Philadelphia’s Sheer Mag are releasing a new album, A Distant Call, on August 23 via Wilsuns RC. Now they have shared another song from the album, “Hardly to Blame,” via a video for the song. Jonathan Arturo directed video for “Hardly to Blame,” which mixes black & white footage of singer Tina Halladay broken hearted with color images of the band performing the song. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

A Distant Call is the follow-up to the band’s 2017-released debut album, Need to Feel Your Love. The band also features guitarist/lyricist Matt Palmer, guitarist Kyle Seely, and bassist/produced Hart Seely and previously they shared A Distant Call‘s first single, “Blood From a Stone.”

Palmer had this to say about “Hardly to Blame” in a press release: “In ‘Hardly to Blame’ we see the psychic landscape of Philadelphia transformed by the collapse of Tina’s relationship with her partner. The streets they used to walk together, the bars they used to drink at, and the friends they used to share have all been tainted by the lingering memories of their time together. Closing out side A of A Distant Call, ‘Hardly to Blame’ shows Tina spiraling further down and down. Unfortunately the worst is yet to come, but ‘Hardly to Blame’ gives us a glimpse at someone who thinks they’ve hit bedrock, unaware that the bottom is about to drop out.”
