Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties premieres a new song & music video for “Divorce and the American South” with The A.V. ClubBands, Featured — By HopelessMallory on June 10, 2014
Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties have premiered a new song and music video from the upcoming album “We Don’t Have Each Other”, out July 8th on Hopeless Records. The album was produced by Ace Enders of The Early November at The Living Room Studio. The music video for “Divorce and the American South” was directed by Mitchell Wojcik and filmed in Brooklyn, NY.
Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties is the solo side project of Dan “Soupy” Campbell of The Wonder Years. Composed of 10 tracks, “We Don’t Have Each Other” documents the worst year of Aaron’s life.
“We Don’t Have Each Other is a story, but an open-ended one. Mitchell Wojcik (director) and I wanted to use this format to continue that story beyond the record; an epilogue of sorts,” explains Campbell. “Aaron spent months bouncing around the American South writing these songs but enough time has passed and he’s come home. The apartment is still empty. The city feels desolate. His soon-to-be ex-wife isn’t returning his calls and so he’s spending his days busking in the subways, hoping she walks by. It’s certainly not an ending, but it is where I see him at this moment in time.”
