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.
