Video: Manchester Orchestra - "Virgin"

Cool story behind this video: Ben Disinger, a student from RIT, was apparently working on a silent film when ManOrch's "Virgin" came on and he realized the two synced up perfectly. He set the song to the visuals and had the cojones to hand deliver the final product to the band.

“We were skeptical to say the least, but the more he talked about it, the more we were interested in actually seeing this thing,” told the band. “He pulled his laptop out and placed it on the steps to the bus. We were blown away. We put him in touch with our manager and for the last few months he’s been putting the finishing touches to this incredible piece. This is that rare moment when art expands further than first intentions or expectations. Where two different inspirations can coincide to create something better."

Always great to see things like this happen. Not too mention Mr. Disinger developed a substantially haunting video for an equally haunting tune, as well as my personal favies off the largely underwhelming Simple Math. Kudos good sir.
