Vocalist Toby Morse said, “We wanted to do a fun, energetic video with the people closest to us. We included our friends who made appearances on Nothing to Prove and sent out MySpace bulletins to invite the fans to be a part of this as well. This video is a great representation of what we are all about and was made in appreciation of the people surrounding us.”
Directed by Joseph Pattisall, the video for Nothing to Prove is a stripped down, guerrilla style video highlighting not H2O, but the people around them who continue to inspire the band.
Joseph said, “I've been a huge H2O fan ever since I saw them open up for Shelter at the old 9:30 club in Washington DC in 1995. After being shooting the ‘What Happened?’ video last year, Toby hit me up wanting to do something more casual, something to ‘give back’ to their friends and fans. Being such a huge, longtime fan of the band, I could not have been more excited to work on this video with them.”
Last year’s release of Nothing to Prove had H2O touring across the world, hitting Europe, the US, and Canada several times over, including co-headlining their first full US tour in years with Bane and a direct support slot with Dropkick Murphys. Still the realest in 2009, H2O will be playing a benefit show in NYC, their last show in New York this year, on June 21st (Father’s Day). Also appearing will be STIGMA, B9 labelmates Cruel Hand, and Turn It Up. More special guests to be announced soon, check out more information on this special show at www.H2OGo.com and www.LarchmontCharterWeHo.org.
