Watch Sheer Mag’s wistful “Hardly To Blame” video

The Philly punk band’s new album is out next month.

July 22, 2019

Sheer Mag will follow up their excellent debut album with new record A Distant Call on August 23. We've already heard lead single "Blood From A Stone" and today sees the arrival of "Hardly To Blame." A video, which features lead vocalist Tina Halladay being haunted by memories of an ex, can be seen above.


Speaking in a press release, guitarist Matt Palmer says the video captures "the psychic landscape of Philadelphia transformed by the collapse of Tina's relationship with her partner. The streets they used to walk together, the bars they used to drink at, and the friends they used to share have all been tainted by the lingering memories of their time together."

As well as sharing their new video, Sheer Mag have also extended their North American and European live schedules.
