Conrad Keely has posted another lengthy screed on trailofdead.com, discussing his dramatic move from Austin to New York City and his band’s future: “Are we breaking up anytime soon? No. Sorry to disappoint you. That means, for all those people who’ve asked for our autographs, they won’t be worth anything for a long time yet, so keep your day job.” Keeley also makes a point of distancing himself and the band from the latest video off So Divided, “Naked Sun”, directed by Cat Solen: “We were sent this treatment before our last American tour. I read the treatment and I thought it was stupid. I told our managers and our label ‘I think this treatment sucks.’ Two weeks later, while on tour, I was sent a rough edit of a finished version of the video made from the treatment I thought was horrible.” Turns out, he’s right. It’s pretty awful. Thank you, Youtube, here’s “Naked Sun”:
