Exclusive Teaser: The Fray's New High Energy Video
December 05, 2013
American rockers The Fray have been delighting fans with their unique sound for more than a decade as they gear up for the release of their new album Helios next month, we've got an exclusive sneak peek of the music video for the record's single Love Don't Die.
This brief teaser from the video features a deep base beat punctuated with rich vocals with the band performing in a country bar setting. Commenting on the latest album, band member Isaac Slade (piano, vocals) said the group reached new milestones working with producer Stuart Price (The Killers, Madonna, Keane).
"Working with Stuart was the best of both worlds. We brought our organic instruments, and he brought his arsenal of electronic antiques. This record is all about running to the front lines of what we've done and pushing our borders even farther. Electronic instruments, drum samples, enormous backing vocals, opening up our writing to folks outside our camp," Slade said.
Joining Slade in The Fray is Joe King (guitar, vocals), Dave Welsh (guitar) and Ben Wysocki (drums). The Denver-based foursome formed in 2002 after high school friends Slade and King bumped into each other at a local guitar shop. The rockers achieved national success with their first single Over My Head (Cable Car), which became a top ten hit in the U.S., and the release of their second single, How to Save a Life, which brought them worldwide fame.
