New album ‘Certain Freedoms’ out April 26th
on End Hits Records (UK/EU) and Other Peoples Records (US/ROW)

Trade Wind–the towering indie-rock project featuring members of Stick To Your Gunsand Stray From The Path have released a very personal video for new single, ‘I Can’t Believe You’re Gone’.

Speaking to Brooklyn Vegan who premiered the video, Jesse (Barnett, vocals/guitar) says,The idea behind the video was to show the perspective of what it can be like to date a musician or specifically someone like me whose music and work overlap and are very time consuming—especially with so much required travel. It’s about the challenges of making a relationship work and being mindful of your partner even when you’re balancing a lot of things at once. We decided to have the video play out in reverse because I often find myself thinking, ‘I wish I could go back the the beginning and do it differently.’

Trade Wind is made up of vocalist/guitarist Jesse Barnett (Stick To Your Guns), guitaristTom Williams (Stray From The Path), Randy LeBoeuf (acclaimed producer/engineer at Graphic Nature Audio), and drummer Andrew McEnaneyCertain Freedoms finds the band achieving new heights of emotional resonance, not through the distorted heaviness that marked much of their early work, but rather a mastery of nuanced dynamics and undeniable melodies. Williams and Barnett’s guitar work is more varied than ever, favouring colourful textures as much as riffs, and washing over the songs as LeBoeuf and McEnaney’s muscular rhythm section supplies the backbone. Barnett’s vocal prowess shines throughout, ranging from a warm whisper to a powerful shout that breaks at the edges, but never loses clarity. It all makes for a fitting vessel for his lyrics: stories of friendships, relationships, childhood memories, and small moments that have big meanings. At first these snapshots may seem disparate, but they weave together into a bigger picture of acceptance, concern, and appreciation of chosen families, and the fragile connections that bind us with the ones we love.

Trade Wind have also announced worldwide tour dates in support of Certain Freedoms. The dates include shows in Europe and UK with support from Modern Color and Scott Ruth, Dates below:
