Hurts to Laugh Releases “Lonely Sound” Music Video


Nashville– Hurts to Laugh announces the release of its latest music video “The Lonely Sound”.  The four-minute video is the result of collaboration with filmmaker Elvis Wilson and marks the band’s fourth effort with the director.  The video spins a narrative of bandleader Cliff Cobain lamenting his isolation and being led to the underworld of rock by the Creative Spirit played by The Dead Deads’ lead singer Leticia Wolf.  Hurts to Laugh has organized a video premiere that features an April 11 public screening of the video as well as live performances from The Dead Deads and The Katies at The 5 Spot Nashville.

The video is a result of a persistent association.  “I’ve worked with Elvis on a number of projects since 2006,” says songwriter and bandleader Erik Dail who goes by the stage name Cliff Cobain. “We met through skateboarding which led to working together on skateboard and music videos and even a full-length feature film.” Dail portrayed a psychopath in Wilson’s award winning 2017 psychological thriller Fogg. “My face lives in Redboxes all over the globe,” Dail quips.

Currently, “Lonely Sound” is live on the band’s Youtube page.  Subsequent plans for the accompanying music include a vinyl release of the song on Knoxville’s Fat Elvis Recordsand distribution through major internet outlets.


Hurts to Laugh is Nashville’s Gnarliest Band.  Accompanying Cliff Cobain in his rock and roll jihad are John Paul Moon, BB Nicks and Jimi Joplin.  The band has the honor of sharing stages with The Katies, The Dead Deads, Valient Himself, and John Davis of Superdrag.  Plans for the future include a tour of US hot-dog stands for a network travel show and a bid for Tennessee gubernatorial candidacy under the cocktail party.
