Rocky Votolato premieres music video for title track of newest album “Hospital Handshakes”

Seattle-based singer/songwriter Rocky Votolato has just released a new music video for the title track of his newest album “Hospital Handshakes”.

Have a look at the stop-animation music video below.

Here’s what Rocky had to say about the making of this music video,

I’ve always wanted to make a stop animation video and this was such a fun process of experimentation and creative collaboration…Sloane Alexandra White is an incredibly talented young director from Portland and a creative force of ideas and inspiration. I was drawn to her work with shadow puppets and think she did a great job of capturing a creepy haunted darkness to visually accompany the themes and vibe of the song.

You can also have a look at a little photo gallery/show review that esteemed colleague Jason Stone recently did of Votolato’s performance in Allston, Massachusetts here.

Rocky is currently on an extensive US tour with Dave Hause, dates and locations of which can be seen below.

“Hospital Handshakes” is Votolato’s eighth studio album and was released this past April through No Sleep Records.
