Cape Town-based Folk-Punks The Shabs have dropped their new music video for their song “We’ve All Been There” and Ghost Cult os bringing it to ya! The track comes from their acclaimed album Can You Hear Us At The Back, released earlier in 2019 via Just Music SA. Check out the hilarious clip below!
Having previously handled video production themselves the band are excited about the opportunity they had to work with a full team this time around, headed by director Alasdair McCullough. “It’s been a really cool experience to work with The Shabs: A crazy shoot schedule, crazy stunts, crazy comedy – I think the final video is gonna be a lot of fun!” Comments Alasdair.
“Working on this music video was honestly a highlight of the band’s career so far. Usually we do everything very DIY with the band doing most of the work. So, to have to opportunity to work with such a fantastic team of director, cinematographer, stylist, production designer, lighting technicians etc was amazing, and I think this video will mark a big step up for us.” Says double bassist Ryan McArthur.
Vocalist and guitarist Jon Shaban adds, “We’re super excited about our new video for ‘We’ve All Been There’. It’s by far the most ambitious video we’ve ever made with The Shabs and another big step forward for the band. The message of the song is that we should never be scared to reach out and ask for help if and when we ever need it, and it’s been amazing for us a band to consistently feel so much love and support from our friends, old and new. Thank you so much to all the crew and actors who really committed to taking on this super ambitious project with us.”
