Jars of Clay Inland

Band Headlining September Tour With Brooke Waggoner, Kye Kye


GRAMMY-Awards winning band Jars of Clay premieres today the video for “Fall Asleep” from their eleventh studio album Inland, exclusively on USAToday.com.  Shot on location in the Philippines, it was directed by Luis Tabuena and stars Filipino model/actress Rhian Ramos.

“When the idea of shooting a music video in the Philippines was offered, we had no idea how amazing the process was going to be,” says Jars of Clay’s Dan Haseltine.  “We are grateful for Luis and the entire production team for making such a beautiful piece to accompany a beautiful song.”

Inland was released August 27th on their own Gray Matters label with distribution through Tone Tree. Produced by Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, Beth Orton, The Decemberists) and mixed by Beau Sorenson and Jacquire King, Inland is currently available in-stores and online at iTunes.

In addition to the USA Today video exclusive, a July Rolling Stone Daily Download and an August CBSNews.com performance of the title track and interview in New York City, Jars of Clay’s Inland was also featured in a recent live review by The Hollywood Reporter, calling the music “…an organic progression for a band that has throughout its career drawn from everything from synth pop to bluegrass, and also the output of a band that has perhaps found its truest voice yet.”  Jars of Clay is further featured this month performing three songs from Inland live in the studio for the RELEVANT Podcast, including the title track, “Fall Asleep” and “Loneliness & Alcohol.”

It’s been nearly twenty years since Dan Haseltine, Steve Mason, Charlie Lowell and Matthew Odmark released their debut Frail. Students at the time, Jars of Clay once again harness the youthful ambition and uninhibited creativity of their beginnings for Inland, while cultivating a maturity in sound with embellishments of violin, horns and ambient melodies that attests two decades of experience.

“These are songs for the ordinary days – when life is weighty and uncertain,” reflects Matthew Odmark. “It is this middle space that we have inhabited over the years. It’s where you and I do the gritty work of actually living.”
