“We all really enjoyed getting to work with a prestigious director such as Orie McGinness. He captured the essence of what we wanted to portray for the metaphor of ‘Carsick,'” said Dayshell’s Shayley Bourget. “The song itself is about a lack of control around substances that are easily abused.”
Bourget continued, “Orie wrote a stellar treatment that coincided with that metaphor extremely well. Getting to work with Orie on set was incredible; he was extremely focused and eager to make a vision come to life. He knew what he wanted. He shaped all of our parts in the video and brought out the inner actor in all of us. It was truly a pleasure getting to work with such a phenomenal person with a solid work ethic.”
“Car Sick” appears on the band’s latest album, Nexus, out October 7 through Spinefarm Records. Pre-orders are live at Merch Now and iTunes.
The band is also touring through October with I The Mighty, Artifex Pereo, and Picturesque.
