NEW COUNTRY REHAB video “Lost Highway” premieres on CBC Music // Fall tour dates! /

September 16, 2014

Toronto, Canada’s NEW COUNTRY REHAB return to the US this month for a busy fall of dates supporting their latest album Ghost of Your Charms, including appearances at Nashville’s Americanafest and Raleigh’s Wide World of Bluegrass.
The latest video is for Ghost track “Lost Highway” premieres exclusively today on CBC Music and is directed by Juno-award winner Christopher Mills (Blue Rodeo, Tragically Hip, Interpol, The Joy Formidable). A nod to legendary Canadian filmmaker/animator Norman McLaren in the year he would have turned 100, “Lost Highway” employs animation techniques akin to McLaren’s “Neighbours” in a Toronto cityscape that recalls Cronenberg’s Crash. Ghostly dancers soar in the air through neon streams, floating along Lakeshore and the Gardiner while NCR cook up a bluesy sludge cauldron of rock.
Lost Highway was a really fun opportunity to mash contemporary dance together with lo-fi, hyperactive, grrrl-power fuelled animation,” says director Christopher Mills. “I got to build an imaginary chase sequence, using a few tools inspired by Mr. McLaren’s films. Long live rock, long live women who don’t take no mess, long live the NFB (National Film Board of Canada).”
