Calpurnia are pleased to share the visuals for Greyhound. Greyhound is lifted from their debut EP, Scout, out now via ParadYse/Transgressive Records and Royal Mountain Records.
The video was directed by Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux, and it isn’t the first time that he and members of Calpurnia have worked together.
Explains Finn Wolfhard: “If Jeremy hadn't cast me and Malcolm in PUP’s "Guilt Trip" video back in 2014, I doubt Calpurnia would even exist. He was not only instrumental in the genesis of our band, but he established what for me is the ideal tone on set. To have it all come full circle with Jeremy directing our "Greyhound" video, it really is kind of amazing. I mean, I don't think you could actually write this story, because no one would believe it.
“This is the third video I've worked on with Jeremy, but with his imagination and energy so infectious, I very much doubt it will be the last.”
Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux recalls: “Six years ago Malcolm, Finn and I (and Chandler Levack) worked on our first music video together, where they played these wild young versions of our pals in the punk band PUP. It was a super gnarly, bloody, freezing rain soaked shoot held together by a crew of maniacs, especially this incredible gang of young (they were only eleven and twelve year olds then!) dudes who came together for one day and somehow turned into a ferocious punk band. They were both like five feet tall already inspiring and scary.
“I thought we'd scarred them all for life, but a few years later we reunited to do a sequel. That was when I heard that Malcolm and Finn had actually started their own band (and they recruited Ayla to come out to the shoot as well), and, of course, they're great and rocking and different from anything you'd expect.
“Being in the crowd to see the fully formed Calpurnia (with Finn, Malcolm, Ayla and now Jack!) smashing out their own music to sell-out crowds, and especially getting to work with them on this music video, has been a surreal full circle and one of the most proud times I've ever had in filmmaking. They go super hard and still manage to be a dope squad to hang out and be on set with!”
