THE DEEP DARK WOODS OPEN FIRE IN A NEW VIDEO FOR “18th OF DECEMBER.”

“18th of December” is a song about the high price to pay for following one’s heart, and accepting the consequences of one’s choices. The song taps in to the archetypical restlessness associated with the rambling, roaming life of a musician.

On its surface, the video is a Bonnie & Clyde type bender through the small-towns of Western Canada, shot mainly in a town of 250 people, Mortlach, SK. The Deep Dark Woods are seen playing against type – the usually unassuming musicians transform into a wild, gun-slinging band of outlaws, hunting down two young lovebirds on a crime spree.

DDWs in CBC’s Studio 211 // New Online Store

A month ago The Deep Dark Woods stopped into CBC Toronto’s Studio 211, to perform a few of the cuts from Jubilee. Visit the CBC Music website to stream 5 live studio recordings and watch videos of “18th of December” and “Red, Red Rose”.

We’ve also launched our new Webstore, where you can purchase CDs, VINYL & T-SHIRTS worldwide, and shipped to your door.
