The Lost Brothers – Come Tomorrow (Official)

The Lost Brothers, Oisin Leech from Navan and Mark McCausland from Omagh, have released a new video and single entitled “Come Tomorrow” ahead of their upcoming Irish Theatre Tour this December. The song is taken from their 2018 album “Halfway Towards A Healing” which has been nominated for Album Of The Year at the upcoming RTE Folk Awards and has received widespread critical acclaim since its release including making The Irish Times’ Best Albums Of 2018. The band will be playing at the awards in Vicar St next Thursday, 25th Oct.

The video is by Tyrone video maker James Coyle, who has combined tour footage filmed on the road with a montage of 1950s TV and B movies which keep the band entertained while they travel from gig to gig.

This is the third video James has done for us” says Mark. “He is a busy cat. He could be in the depths of New Orleans making a documentary on moonshiners, or halfway across the Atlantic Ocean drinking brandy. It captures the song and frames it inside a battered TV from the 50s, like a lost mind frantically flicking through the static, stumbling in and out of consciousness, walking the thin line between dreams and reality. We are sure it means something. We just don’t know what. We love it” says Mark from The Lost Brothers.

The song was produced by Howe Gelb in Tucson is partly inspired by hearing Tim Rose’s self -titled 1967 album which was recommended by a pal Sheffield musician Richard Hawley. 

The song was probably the last addition to Halfway Towards A Healing” remembers Oisin. “The Tim Rose album was a massive influence and the lyrics were written while walking the countryside up around Omagh in the Gortin Glen in County Tyrone. We also had Johnny Cash’s mysterious 1963 Irish Tour in mind when writing the song. We had often been told about this tour and we hear that they recently found the tapes. James, who made the video, added some old 1950s TV footage to some tour footage we had filmed so as to make sure things don’t get too serious.”

The Lost Brothers will Tour Canada in February next and return to Australia in  April 2019.
