LONGWAVE SHARE MUSIC VIDEO FOR RETURN SINGLE "STAY WITH ME”
BAND PLAYS THE BOWERY BALLROOM IN NYC
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 17
Today, Longwave share the music video for their first single in ten years “Stay With Me”. Dave Doobinin of Follette Films directed the video.
“‘Stay With Me’ is a love song,” frontman Steve Schiltz shares, “albeit not really in a typical guy-girl-hold hands type way. A while back now, a family member of mine was diagnosed with cancer. It looked bad, and we were pretty sure we were going to lose him. This was someone I'd had in my life as far back I can remember. I was worried about him, and it occurred to me, what is his wife going to do? I couldn't imagine the grief she was preparing to withstand.
It was at this moment in time that I wrote the words for this song. I was thinking about her loss, which wasn't going to simple - it clearly meant she was going to have to carry on without him. What was that going to look like for her?
In the end, against all odds, he beat the cancer into remission, and at this time there is no detectable cancer. It was truly a miracle. So, this was a case of everyone winning here...I got the song, and our family gets to keep him.”
“Stay With Me” is currently available as a limited-pressed 7" through indie label Bodan Kuma Recordings, available here. Though the band’s album is still under wraps, they’ve just completed a North American fall tour with Blue October and are headlining Bowery Ballroom in NYC on Saturday, November 17. Longwave has also launched a Pledge Music campaign to coincide with the album release.
