Cass McCombs’ ninth full-length album, Tip Of The Sphere, was released earlier this month. Now, following the recently released Absentee video, McCombs returns to the album’s first single and the thematic centrepiece of the album, Sleeping Volcanoes, with a video where dancers destroy Tahiti Pehrson’s contemporary art piece, ‘The Rising Body’

The video was shot in San Francisco Financial and Tenderloins districts and in the forests of Marin County. As previously described by McCombs, Sleeping Volcanoes is about “people passing each other on the sidewalk unaware of the emotional volatility they are brushing past, like a sleeping volcano that could erupt at any moment”

Take a watch of the video below…
