Warner Music Canada recording artist Blue Rodeo has today released the video for “I Can’t Hide This Anymore,” taken from the band’s latest album, the critically acclaimed 1000 Arms.
The band has also announced today that they will perform at Budweiser Stage in Toronto on August 19. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 12 at Noon EST.
The video was produced by first time director Shelby Fenlon, a recent graduate of OCAD University in Toronto. Fenlon came to band’s attention as a result of a call out to up and coming young artists who might collaborate with the band. In 2016, Fenlon was a finalist in C Magazine’s New Critics competition and was granted the Project 31 Award for her thesis work at OCAD where she received her BFA in Photography.
“It was surreal to shoot with Blue Rodeo,” said Fenlon. “I love that such an established band was willing to take a risk on a young director and lo-fi video concept. They were up for pretty much everything – except the pink bedazzled suit – and there were a lot of laughs on the set.”
“We have made many videos and it is difficult to get these old dogs riled up,” says Jim Cuddy. “This video not only got us excited to see the footage but we all liked the way we looked so much, we adopted it for the stage. Fun, creative and energizing. Wonderful director and crew.”
The video release comes on the heels of Blue Rodeo’s recently completed tour of Canada in support of 1000 Arms.
