Lights’ New Video for “We Were Here” is Gonna Set Your Day on Fire

By | February 2, 2018 at 11:45 AM

If you need us at all today, we’ll be in the land of Madison Oasis with Lights’ new video. “We Were Here” is a foot-stomping explosion of sound from her concept album Skin&Earth—and now it’s got an intense video to match, featuring Lights’ husband Beau Bokan of Blessthefall. The video dives deep into the toxic drugged-out world of Skin&Earth’s creation for some breaking & entering, some, uh…pyrotechnics, and a whole lotta badassery. Lights says of the video:

“From the minute I wrote ‘We Were Here’ I couldn’t wait to draw that part of the comic,” Lights said. “And from the minute I drew that chapter, I couldn’t wait to make the video. This is a song about owning the time we have on earth, and the video captures that whole vibe perfectly.”

Need more Lights in your life? She’s got you: Catch her on her massive We Were Here headline US tour, with support from Chase Atlantic, Dear Rouge, and DCF. She’s also just released issue #1 of Skin&Earth’s accompanying comic and versions of “Giants” in various other languages! What are you waiting for? Get ready to run away into the night, yelling “We Were Here”…
