August & J proved in 2012 that they were ready to take their place among the current crop of hook-laden, radio-friendly alternative rock bands. After racking up a staggering 3 million (and counting) YouTube views for their last clip “For Once;” these artists are it again, this time bringing a highly personal video clip for a catchy and inspiring tune called “The Moon.”

August & J are both friends and musicians who have been collaborating over the years to present the contemporary music scene with powerful, alternative rock music. It began after J had the feeling as if something was missing within his musical career, and after fifteen years of musical separation, he contacted friend August, whom he had always worked with on musical endeavors since the early 90s.

Their first full-length titled 40 was released in early 2012 and gained a vast array of positive critiques, as well as an increasingly large fanbase, due in large part to the viral success of “For Once”. Many videos can rack up an absurd amount of fake computer-generated views, but “For Once” did it the old fashioned way, by making a unique video, pairing it with a great song and taking all the right steps to get it in front of appreciative viewers. On the heels of this buzz, the band has been receiving critical acclaim for their ability to present extra catchy alternative rock songs. The contemporary feel and vibe of these modern rock all-stars makes them stand out amongst other musicians. We’re pleased to be working with Bald Dog Records and LAND SHARK Promotion Studio to bring you the duo’s rocking new video for “The Moon,” which is a song that inspires all musicians to remember where their hearts are.

“The Moon” portrays a feeling of personal reflection as it touches upon what it really feels like to leave one’s home, friends, and most important, family, behind as a musician packs up for some time on the road. Powered by August & J’s powerfully driven alternative rock anthems, the video includes J’s real daughter, which really hits home for viewers and also brings out a genuine dynamic between the principle characters of the video. “The Moon” incorporates images of the moon and the stars, and represents the idea that no distance can ever come between a father and his daughter; the clip sends a heartwarming message that states that the stars will always connect you to the ones you love and cherish the most.

Since their first video “For Once,” HIP Video Promo has been anticipating the release of their next video, and without further adieu “The Moon” is finally here! Their full-length album 40 proved that they are here to stay, and “The Moon” shows fans and viewers just how infectious the music of August & J really is.
