We contacted him and he had the idea of doing the world’s first skate video without a skateboard, and we were sold right there.”

Recording Sand + Silence involved a collaboration with Justin Vernon, spending a week in his Wisconsin studio to create what would become a new Rosebud era-the energy of which can be felt immensely in their new video for ‘Blue Eyes,’… the resulting sound is more hook-heavy tunes that brim with sheer joy and herald a welcome return for the North Carolina band.
