Video premiere: Eric Campbell and the Dirt – “The Rose Inn Motel”

VANCOUVER — With an LP full of rock ‘n’ roll emotions waiting in the wings, Vancouver’s Eric Campbell and the Dirt tease their new album with a story of the “Rose Inn Motel.” The new single and its accompanying video embody the spirit of penniless road tripping and last minute accommodations, two things travelling musicians must accept as fate.
“The Rose Inn Motel is a true story of a motel in New Orleans that Emily Haine (former bassist of The Dirt) and I had the unique pleasure of staying in,” Campbell says. “It was grim scenery beyond belief and I would not recommend a visit, but it deserved a song.”

EricCampbellandtheDirtFilmed by Art Signified friend and cohort Mitch Ray on a grey morning after a night with friends in Vancouver, the music video captures the essence of the Rose Inn Motel, featuring live footage of Eric Campbell and the Dirt’s engaging yet strung out performances.

“We don’t seek it out, it’s a magnetism,” Campbell says, explaining the relationship between his band and grim desolate environments. “We’re all happy people, we have fun, but we attract these ridiculous places.”

“We should have slept in the car,” says Haine.

“Rose Inn Motel” is a single off Eric Campbell and the Dirt’s ‘s upcoming full-length, Western Violence & Brief Sensuality, which will be released in late April. Stay tuned for more from these crazy kids.
