Commenting on the song, guitarist Clayton Bartholomew says, “For me, ‘The Weeds I Have Tended’ (like the rest of the songs on the album) is about being confronted with past mistakes and being forced to look them in the eye. The takeaway is that it is alright to reinvent yourself personally and it's also alright to shun the people and things from your past that you can no longer relate to. For the video, we used a lot of symbolic imagery to convey this, mortality and motion being the main ones." MOUNTAINEER also recently released a video for their single “Shot Through With Sunlight” that can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/r_FFWA3U1X0 MOUNTAINEER’s upcoming record, “Bloodletting,” follows the band’s critically heralded, 2018 sophomore record, “Passages.” The band is currently plotting their return to stages across the U.S. later this year. Details forthcoming.
