“L.A.” is the latest single from the “Music for Television” EP by The March Divide
San Antonio-based band The March Divide has debuted the first video from its current “Music for Television” EP, out now via Seattle’s Dead Letter Records label. The clip is a sequel of sorts to the video for “Jose Cuervo” from The March Divide’s debut album Music for Film, released earlier this year. The “So It Goes” video stars the same two actors, Stephen Lindquist and Angela Wilson, who appeared in “Jose Cuervo,” a touching piece about small-town life that was recently premiered by Under The Radar. Both videos were produced by Ben Pien and Jeremiah Satterthwaite of Doubt Films.
“We all have things in our past that we’d give almost anything to go back and do over,” says Putnam of ‘So It Goes.’ This video portrays the way dwelling on past mistakes can feel.” After six years away from music after ending his Emo-era band The Conversation, Putnam realized that getting back in wasn’t so easy. Upon the release of the band’s debut album Music for Film, however, it was readily apparent that half a dozen years away had not taken a toll on Putnam’s songwriting chops. Called “impressively hooky” by American Songwriter, Austin’s NPR affiliate KUTX simply stated, “This album kicks butt.”
The March Divide is also currently promoting the song “L.A.,” the latest single from “Music for Television.” The track recently premiered exclusively via CMT Edge. The song is a real-life tale from Putnam’s life that details a time when he basically dropped out of society.
“After I broke up my band and quit the road, I spent a few years completely out of touch with almost everyone I knew,” Putnam explains. “I sort of hid myself in a way that no one even knew where or how to find me. My label told me that they spent years looking for me, even periodically checking missing person reports and AMBER alerts. I guess I just wanted to start over as someone else. I now know how wrong that was, but it’s just where I was at the time.”
“Music for Television” by The March Divide is out now. The singles “L.A.” and “So It Goes,” as well as the “So It Goes” video, are all streaming now. Band leader Jared Putnam is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
