With close harmonies, lead guitar that could be straight from a Morricone soundtrack and a wizard walking through an ancient forest, The Sadies blaze a black and white bonfire of a track with the video for ‘More Alone’.   This is a poignant tribute to the Canadian band’s singer Dallas Good who passed away in 2022 and features footage from his last performance with the band.  Good wrote the song about the tragic death of Justin Townes Earle, making it an even more powerful statement on grief.

“Our dear friend and collaborator Rick White made this video tribute for “More Alone” shortly after Dallas left us, for a song Dallas wrote shortly after Justin Townes Earle passed. It’s beautiful how art can help us heal and how it connects us. We are grateful to share this with all of you. The live footage was taken from our last live performance together at Hillside Inside on Feb. 4, 2022. Much love and thanks to Rick and Brian.” – Travis, Mike & Sean

Of the video, White offers, “In music, you’re immortal, and I try to symbolize that with this video. An artist never dies; they’re always alive in the art. Love you Sadies.”

Despite the loss of their long-time member the band continues on led by Dallas’ brother and fellow founding member, Travis Good.   They are launching a U.S. tour to support their new album ‘Colder Streams’ in February and March of 2023.
