Following the band's successful headlining slot of the Vodafone Stage at Rock in Rio Lisboa, Boogarins are back to share a new video, which has just premiered on BrooklynVegan.
The lyrics to “Tempo” speak about stopping time and freeing yourself from the everyday grind of work and school and escaping the pressures of daily life, and for the video, the band called out to their fans to help illustrate the point. They reached out to their fans on social media, and asked them shoot footage of two different moods; first, “man’s world,” full of soul-crushing images of urban life and responsibilities; second, images of your sanctuary — friends, nature, music , art, and anything that makes you feel open and free. They received hundreds of submissions, which were then crafted into a coherent whole by director Owen Mack of Cobrandit Films, including hundreds of images and sounds collected by Boogarins fans across Brazil and around the world.
The group will be performing select dates throughout North America throughout the summer, which are listed below the video.

"It is with some sadness, but much optimism, that we announce Tall Tales and the Silver Lining will no longer be. The wild horse was tamed for a good long ride, but the time has come to set it free as we all move forward toward new horizons and projects.Thanks to every musician who has jumped in, sat in, or stayed in. Thanks to every listener, every audience, every band that we shared a stage with, every person who connected with a record, every artist who lent a hand visually or musically to one of our records, every person who helped behind the scenes and helped get our records out, and every venue that gave us an ear. The mission was to spread joy, and we think we did a pretty dang good job with that! We are going to play the rest of our dates (see below) and would love to see you there to share in these last days before we look back with wonder. God bless, peace and love always."
