The Damn Truth Looking out for Tomorrow

Critically acclaimed Montreal-based four-piece rock band The Damn Truth has released an energetic, empowering, adrenalin-pumping, anthemic new single in ‘Tomorrow’.

“I made a conscious effort to forget the past, and said, ‘F*** you’ to the future and focus on now,” said lead guitarist Tom Shemer of the arena-rock guitar that introduces the sing-along chorus of ‘Tomorrow’.

You can catch the official video for it right here at RAMzine – It was directed by Ariel Levesque and Ben Gelfand at I/O Studio in Canada.

The video is a visual journey through the 60s, 70s, and 90s musical eras; all of which are major influences on the band.

‘Tomorrow’ is the second single taken from the band’s third studio album Now or Nowhere that was produced by Bob Rock (Metallica, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, The Cult, Bryan Adams).

The single follows hot on the heels of the band’s previous single ‘This Is Who We Are Now’ that attracted heavy airplay on UK radio including Planet Rock. The single and album are available from by clicking here

“Working with the I/O team on the filming of this video was once again a mind-altering experience” said lead singer and guitarist Lee-La Baum. “This time around, instead of turning us into Cirque de Soleil acrobats, we time travelled to some of our favourite musical eras. And what a trip it was!”

They ended up shaving their facial hair for the 60s sequence, but waited until all the other filming sequences were shot before doing so and filming the black and white retro scenes. “With a reputation like ours; cleaning up was a challenge,” reflects drummer Dave Traina. “My upper lip hadn’t seen the light of day in over a decade.” Bassist PY Letellier, apparently  had the most fun, on and off set saying, “I really enjoyed drinking cold gin throughout the 60s, 70s and 90s!!”

The Damn Truth embark on a 13-date UK tour in February next year, and will  also supporting King King on various dates. Tickets are available from The Gig Cartel and more information can be found at RAMzine here.
