Watch: A Day To Remember - City Of Ocala
A Day To Remember celebrate their hometown roots in their video for City Of Ocala.
From their hugely successful 2013 record Common Courtesy, Florida post-hardcore giants A Day To Remember have released a video for their single City Of Ocala. The video centres itself around the song's lyrical content, namely the booming chorus lines: "this is our corner of the world, where we can come to be ignored/this is our point where we return, this is where I came from". The song is a toast to the band’s hometown of Ocala, and talks about how big an influence growing up there had on the success they've enjoyed as a band since starting out in 2003.
The vid is comprised of shots of ADTR’s members taking us on a scenic tour of locations around Ocala, and tells the story of how strongly their band history is linked in with the hometown they love so dearly. There’s a lot of really rad time-lapse camera work to admire in this clip and it was refreshing to see a heavy band make a music video with a bit of originality and storytelling behind it, rather than the usual live show footage videos we’ve grown used to seeing.
This video highlights why A Day To Remember remain one of the most likeable bands in their genre. Even with the mind-blowing international success they’ve achieved over the past few years, ADTR remain humble, loyal to their fan base and immensely thankful to the town in which they grew up.
