Two years ago we introduced Halifax-based band Mauno, comprised of vocalist/bassist Eliza Niemi, vocalist/guitarist Nick Everett, guitarist Scott Boudreau and drummer Adam White. Two years after Tuning, they announced the release of a new album. Really Well is out on August 2nd. “Vampire” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video below.

According to the press release, the video places Mauno in a bizarre endurance-piece, challenging the band to continue performing while physically exhausted. Shooting the band cycling over an uninterrupted hour in a desolate gym, the exercise’s absurdity contrasts the song’s inspirational tone and lyrics. The video also serves as a meta-metaphor for the experience of operating and promoting a band.
