Spanish Prisoners – Know No Violence (official music video) from Spanish Prisoners on Vimeo.

Spanish Prisoners are excited to premiere the video for “Know No Violence,” from their self-released album Gold Fools. Directed by Jono Chanin and shot on the RED Scarlet camera on a serendipitously snowy day in upstate New York and around New York City, the video provides a gorgeous and mysterious backdrop to a song I Guess I’m Floating described as “one of those songs that seems like nothing like it has ever existed” and Music Fan’s Mic named as “one of the most flexible, daring and downright beautiful pop songs of the year.”

The band will be touring in March to SXSW, including dates with Snowmine, Youth Lagoon, and Real Estate. Not content to just travel the country and play shows, Spanish Prisoners will also be following through on the promise of their recently actualized “Vantasy” Kickstarter campaign, in which they will record a song-a-day in their newly purchased van while on tour.
