Consider the Source releases new video for "Rock, Flag & Eagle" & announces tour of intimate, seated performances in support of their recently released Acoustic/Electric Hybrid Album out on Ropeadope Records. For the first time ever, the band will be taking out their collection of acoustic instruments from around the world in addition to their signature axes to perform the album in full plus more. Many of these instruments will be new sights and sounds for western crowds. CTS cites Central Asia as an influence on this album in addition to the Eastern European, Turkish and Indian music they have been exploring their whole career. Be sure to secure your tickets in advance for this one of a kind live musical experience.
"Rock, Flag & Eagle" is a song that takes influence from music from Kazakhstan and features the sounds of Dombra, Ukulele Bass, and Darbuka while combining them with a western harmonic and rhythmic sensibility. Filmed on a rocky shore in Rhode Island by Kettlebottom Creative, this video highlights the earthy elements of the music at play.
