Punchline showcases Pittsburgh in new video for 'Darkest Dark'

The city of Pittsburgh is the star of local band Punchline's latest video for the track "Darkest Dark."

The video chronicles the day of a young couple enjoying themselves in the steel city and features Pittsburgh's unique skyline, as well as some of its most recognizable landmarks like Randyland, Kennywood Park, and a few of its many bridges. Even the video's director and stars are local. Punchline calls "Darkest Dark," from latest album Lion, both "a thank you note to a friend or partner who has helped out during a hard time" and "a love letter" to their hometown. The song also features a guest appearance by Matt Thiessen from the band Relient K.

Punchline previously released a performance video for Lion's opening track "Friend from the Future."

The band will be playing a free concert in Pittsburgh this Friday, Aug. 31, courtesy of local radio station WYEP. Then they'll be on the road next month for a small string of dates as a continuation of their Part of the Hive tour with The Spill Canvas

Lion is out now.
