Rootsy Americana band the Black Lillies release video for 'The Fall' -- EXCLUSIVE

The Black Lillies

Back in March, the indie-Americana band the Black Lillies of Knoxville, Tenn., showed the country world a thing or two with the release of their third album, Runaway Freeway Blues.

The album debuted at No. 21 on the Heatseekers chart – not to mention No. 41 on the Country chart – on the strength of the group’s strong roots-folk songwriting, sweet harmonies, and charismatic indie spirit. (A strong showing at SXSW didn’t hurt either.)

Now as the quintet – frontman Cruz Contreras, harmony vocalist Trisha Gene Brady, multi-instrumentalist Tom Pryor, bass player Robert Richards, and drummer Jamie Cook – set out to spread their gospel on a nationwide tour, they’ve released a video for their single, “The Fall,” and you can watch it exclusively here.

Take a look at the Black Lillies’ video below:
