State Radio Shares "Take Cover" Music Video; European Tour Starts Today
State Radio shares the official music video for “Take Cover” from their studio album, Rabbit Inn Rebellion (out now).
Each song on Rabbit Inn Rebellion has a unique story and "Take Cover" is no different. “Take Cover” is written about the ignorance and detachment of some when it comes to war. Taking this idea a bit further, director Chris Coats explores what happens when complacency is no longer the option. The protagonist, an androgynous female, begins in a generic suburban setting and is quickly propelled through an apocalyptic string of events that is both violent and redemptive.
State Radio’s Chad Stokes, Chuck Fay and Mike “Mad Dog” Najarian serve up rock n’ roll realism that weaves together stories of the downtrodden and the oppressed, but never loses its sense of hope. Demonstrating the band’s versatility, Rabbit Inn Rebellion is raw and gritty, rolling with thunderous drumming and delectably grimy guitars, moving away from the previously reggae- and ska-tinged productions on 2009's Let It Go.
State Radio is currently touring in Austria, Switzerland and Germany; with a stateside tour planned later this year. Like they’ve done countless times in the States and Canada, volunteers from Calling All Crows (CAC) - an organization founded by State Radio frontman Chad Stokes and tour manager Sybil Gallagher - will be onsite to create change through hands-on service and activism. Teaming up with Amnesty International, CAC will be collecting signatures for a petition to create a robust Arms Trade Treaty to prevent weapons from ending up in the hands of tyrants and child soldiers. The first every treaty will be presented and negotiated at the United Nations’ gathering on March 18-23. For more information, please visit: http://callingallcrows.org/att.
