SHINY TOY GUNS
UNVEIL SHORT FILM VIDEO FOR
“WAITING ALONE”

In what could be one of the most ambitious music videos from an independent band, Shiny Toy Guns‘ Carah Faye and Jeremy Dawson went to great lengths to tell the story of ‘the love runner’ in their new video for ‘Waiting Alone.’”

Los Angeles’ SHINY TOY GUNS newest track “Waiting Alone” marks the return of Carah Faye, the original vocalist who along with band mates Chad Petree (vocals/guitars), Jeremy Dawson (keyboards/bass) and Mikey Martin (drums), propelled Shiny Toy Guns into the spotlight with their first hits “Le Disko” and “You Are The One” from their debut 2006 release We Are Pilots. Now, the band has made available the “Waiting Alone” video, which made its debut yesterday on VEVO.  It can be viewed here:

Conceptualized by Faye and Dawson and directed by Luke Eberl and Edgar Morais, the 6 minute and 45 second short film titled “#Loverunner” finds a girl (Carah), running cross-country from Los Angeles to New York City in a quest to join the love of her life, overcoming daunting obstacles posed by a mysterious evil figure. During the making of the video, the band covered almost 6,000 miles through 22 states over 24 days, filming at such landmarks as the Grand Canyon, Pike’s Peak, the Alamo and the Empire State Building.  SHINY TOY GUNS’ Chad Petree, who sings lead vocal on the song, is also featured in the piece.

“Waiting Alone” appears on the band’s third album III, due out in October on Five Seven Music.  Look for a remix by L.A. Riots to be made available soon.  Details about SHINY TOY GUNS’ fall tour plans are coming up, but in the meantime catch them live at:
