Ontario-based quartet Kasador shows the full transparency of tour life in their new video “Waiting” where we see clips of the members on the road. From killing it onstage to random shenanigans, the video captures the chemistry of the four as both bandmates and friends. You almost feel like you’re watching a field trip without the teacher:

In their own words, it “is a song that recognizes the reality of being a touring musician and the toll it takes on one’s personal relationships. It is a paradoxical situation because being in a band with some of your best friends and creating something you believe in is really fun; if it wasn’t, we wouldn’t be doing it. However, you have to push aside relationships in the pursuit of success in this career, and unfortunately sometimes you let people down by doing so.

What makes this all so twisted is that what usually keeps us going is the support of our loved ones. It’s a weird situation where we have to push these relationships aside to an extent to pursue this career, yet we rely on them so much.”

“Waiting” is from their debut album Brood & Bloom, which is out now. The band is currently on tour and will be announcing more dates soon:
