NEWS: Bon Iver Releases New Music Video for "Towers" & New North American Tour Dates Including The Red Rocks with Feist

Nabil Elderkin, the filmmaker responsible for Bon Iver's epic "Holocene" video, directed the third video for Bon Iver, Bon Iver. Today "Towers" premiered at Vimeo:

When Justin sent me a breakdown of what certain parts/lines of the song meant to him I did my best to decode it and curate into something simple, and hopefully the viewer can take from it their own feeling of what the towers represent. It was shot up in Washington state, mostly on Indian-preserved land, and our actor's name was Mystic. He seemed to be very tuned into the land, and when he said he was also willing to fall into the freezing cold ocean up there (seems a bit sharky too), I knew he was my guy.

A "Towers" 12" and digital single will be out on March 6th with John Prine cover "Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow)" as the b-side. The cover was originally recorded for the John Prine tribute album Broken Hearts and Dirty Windows. The 12" is now up for pre-order at SC Distribution.

Bon Iver is currently down under, but they'll be back in North America this spring with dates around their Coachella performances as well as a concert at the famed Red Rocks Ampitheatre with Feist. Tour dates, including the first-ever date in Calgary, are below!
