"Ancient Family" From the album "Heritage" Video by Keith Bradshaw ILS group/ Universal/ Caroline

Island inspired Alt-Americana quartet Dangermuffin are proud to debut the music video for their lead single “Ancient Family”. The video comes in celebration of the Charleston, SC natives newest album, Heritage, which releases today, March 31, 2017. Set beneath the soaring ceilings and ornate architecture of Charleston’s historic Unitarian Church, the video for “Ancient Family” features Dangermuffin performing while flanked by images of a dancer organically moving to the music. The simplistic cinematic approach allows fans to fully appreciate the beauty of the setting, performance, and song as each plays off each other. Watch “Ancient Family” HERE.

“The concept for the video happened spontaneously,” recalls Dangermuffin frontman Dan Lotti. “We knew we wanted to be in the historic Unitarian Church where the album was recorded and feature a dancer who could interpret the song through movement. The footage of Amanda Rose, our phenomenal dancer, was representative of the song's mother energy as she dances and flows and beckons for us to return to our roots. It came out great!” He continues, “thanks to the direction of videographer Keith Bradshaw, the video made itself."

This week, Heritage debuted at number one on the March Jambands.com radio chart. The album has already received airplay support from KCRW, WNCW, WMNF, and KBAC among others. The eight-track collection of warm and coastally-influenced songs is now available for purchase through iTunesApple Music, and Spotify.

Dangermuffin are currently on a US album release tour that hits both coasts. Their tour will span the country through the early summer months including a run through California. A full list of dates are below.
