Music Video: Old Man Markley – “Train of Thought”

Posted by Kaylee McNeil on Monday, July 21, 2014 at 3:35 PM (PST)

San Fernando Valley bluegrass punks Old Man Markley have just released their music video for “Train of Thought”, a track off of their latest release, Down Side Up, which was launched last year via Fat Wreck Chords. You can check out the video here.

The footage was taken this summer when the band visited Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas.

On the relationship between the song and footage, the group commented:

The song “Train of Thought” seemed appropriate to film at PRB… With so many activities to pull you in any direction – bowling, shows, pool parties and things we shouldn’t mention here. In this video we captured anyone that crossed our “trains” path and included them in the filming! This song was written by Joey Garibaldi and Todd Fenton, who aptly describes the song: “Control is an illusion, except when you’re out of it. Same could be said for perception. The mistakes of the past and pressures from the future are what make us the same, not different.” We hope the video reflects the chaos and serendipitous nature of crossing paths with people and being open to the experiences that follow such interactions.

The band is currently taking a post-tour break, and the aforementioned track certainly captures the weary exhaustion of life on the road.
