A Day Without Love Celebrates New Music Video & Touring

Matthew with The Hook (duh) here again to bring you just what you’ve been missing! Reviews of some of your favorite artists, past present and forever. I’m back today with an all too familiar face! Philadelphia favorite & DIY legend, A Day Without Love.

If you need a refresher, the man behind the guitar is Philly artist Brian Walker. He’s back doing what he does best: making you feel things deep down, sharing wisdom, and making real good sounds. This time in music video form! That’s right, this music video celebrates the recently concluded “The Rise Above Tour” which spanned 10 different cities in just 9 days! A Day Without Love spent time in each respective city, visiting friends, making new friends and eating really good food. Now, if you think that’s impressive just wait until we get into the song and video aptly titled: “Good Friends Are Hard to Find.”

Check out the music video down below!

As someone who knows a thing or two about long-distance relationships and the connections we make along the way in this journey of living, I’m really into this music video! Factoring in the stupendous guitar playing and great editing, this video is everything you could want and more! Heartfelt and touching songwriting? Check! A gorgeous guitar patterning, harmonized with just the right touch of back-up vocals? Double check! I don’t want to give away too much of the magic here, because this is a moment you need to have fresh in your mind (by clicking on the above video streaming). If this doesn’t leave you appreciating everyone that has ever left an imprint on your heart, then I recommend listening harder because you’re missing it.

What A Day Without Love and Brian are promoting is a message we here at The Hook find very important and sadly remains often unrecognized. Don’t think for one second that we won’t continue to support A Day Without Love, good vibes, making new friends, and (per usual) enjoying really good music.

Moving forward, we can’t wait to see what’s next on the horizon for one of our favorite musicians!
