Trippy Philly four-piece Empath made a lot of noise a couple years back with Active Listening: Night On Earth, and today are back with their first single since then. “Born 100 Times” is a gnarly noisy pop song with an incredibly catchy melody, and for its music video, the band pays a visit to the New York State Fair.

Shot by Empath buds Halle Ballard and Johnny Costa, we see bandmates Catherine Elicson, Garrett Koloski, Emily “Jem” Shanahan and Randall Coon riding the tilt-a-whirl, goofing in the fun house, winning prizes at the carnival games, and generally having a good time during strange times.

In a press release, Elicson says:

There’s something beautiful and nostalgic about a fair we wanted to try and capture. … It was a much needed night of leisure at the end of a long summer spent preparing for the next phase of Empath. The video is a document of this special moment in time for us. United together, we left behind the isolating, internal struggles of our lives and connected to the real world outside of ourselves.

Watch “Born 100 Times” below; the band is on tour with Modest Mouse for the next month, and then plays some dates with Fucked Up in early 2022 — including a January 23 show at Underground Arts. Check out their tour scheduled below and get details on that Philly show at the XPN Concert Calendar.
