Video Premiere: Cheat Codes, "Adventure"
Sharin' tacos, sharin' music
There's something totally amazing about music - it gives you the chance to fall in love, reinvent yourself, be honest, get crazy, and challenge yourself to take what you're doing to the next step. We were thinking about all of those things when we were listening to Cheat Codes when they joined the Feed The Beat program earlier this year. The three members - Kevin Ford, Matthew Russell, and Trevor Dahl - have been making music individually for years, and came together to bring a myriad of different genres and influences to the table. They've released a handful of singles so far, and they keep getting better and better.
One of our favorite tracks from Cheat Codes is "Adventure", and Feed The Beat is excited to premiere the brand new video for it today. It features three of our favorite things: tacos, spreading love, and a super catchy song:
Once the video was wrapped, we spoke with Trevor Dahl about where the concept came from and the band's real life adventures on the road:
The video you created for "Adventure" is totally awesome - what inspired the band to take the video in this direction? We told ourselves that if we won Feed The Beat we would make a video of us giving the tacos away to people and we won! So thats what we did!
There's been some great support from your fans for "Adventure" so far. Was it easy to choose this song for your next video? Yeah it was an obvious choice, plus the vibe of the song really fit the video idea we came up with. We took a road trip to Slab City and met so many cool people, so it was like we went on an actual adventure.
Cheat Codes has a couple of tour dates scheduled before the end of 2015, which is great (ending the year on a high note!) What are you looking forward to with these upcoming shows? We're hoping to connect with our fans and some new ones! We're super grateful for getting to play some of these cities, We're playing L.A. and Eugene Oregon Which are cities we've grown up around and are very familiar with so its amazing to perform and have old friends/family see where we're taking this project.
