Pray For Sunshine – Children Collide

Children Collide have just released the third single from their album Monument, Praying For Sunshine has released to radio and is available digitally.

The new single is not the only exciting new Children Collide news, there is also a clever new video to accompany Praying For Sunshine and the band have added several extra dates to their national tour in August.

Children Collide certainly know how to make an intriguing video clip, their Loveless clip from Animal Kingdom director David Michôd was re-created by Triple J’s The Doctor and garnered a lot of attention including a J Award nomination. Most recent single Cherries video clip was an eye popping visual piece compiled using fan-shot photos captured on the Sword To A Gunfight tour and submitted online.

The video for Praying For Sunshine was directed by Leo Baker, a visual artist best know for his work on Happy Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Get Smart, Charlotte’s Web and Superman Returns. The Lost Thing is a film animated and edited by Baker, completed in 2010, and winner of many International awards – one of which was the Academy Award for best animated short film.

The Praying For Sunshine video was exclusively premiered by Triple J on Monday June 25.

Praying For Sunshine is an exercise in contrasts, lyrically exploring opposites, with quite a mellow and enjoyable sound. Melodic and a little electronic. The video further explores this train of thought with animation and live action flowing seamlessly across the screen.

Children Collide are also excited to announce the addition of extra shows on the national August Monument Tour. Second shows have been added for Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Hobart, Brisbane and Sydney which gives fans many more opportunities to catch the band as they present their fiery live show and perform favourite tracks as well as new material from Monument.
