Watch: The Dears - “I Used to Pray For the Heavens to Fall” Animated Lyric Video

Times Infinity Volume One Due September 25

As we previously reported, The Dears recently announced their new album, Times Infinity Volume One, which is out September 25 via Dangerbird. When the album was announced the Montreal band shared the beautiful and soaring new song “I Used to Pray For the Heavens to Fall.” Now the song has a very cool lyric video. Unlike some lyric videos, that are just lyrics against an innocuous background, this is a beautifully animated clip that could easily be presented as a full on video for the song. Sinbad Richardson directed and animated the video, which features the misadventures of a beetle who builds a rocket. Check it out below.

“Believe it or not, this is our very first ‘lyric video,’” said frontman Murray Lightburn in a press release. “We asked our pal Sinbad (‘Omega Dog’ video director) to create something special, something that would appeal to everyone, young and old. What he delivered was a ‘lyric video+’ that made Natalia [Yanchak - band keyboardist and Murray’s wife], cry the first time she saw it.”

Director Richardson had this to say about the video: “Murray came by to sit down and talk about the video and the overall sentiment of Times Infinity. The point that mostly inspired the concept for ‘I Used To Pray For the Heavens to Fall’ was when he described the feeling when Natalia and the kids leave the house and he has a deep sinking feeling of concern for them. I thought this was a dark and sweet notion of family and the story applies that notion to a young couple that are torn apart by entomology. I can’t say how the Hercules beetle character came to be, it really just popped in my head once I started thinking of the story on an insect level.”
