Love And Theft looks to Dancing in Circles
Friday, December 11, 2009
– Love And Theft's Brian Bandas, Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Liles gathered on 5th Avenue in downtown Nashville in late November to shoot the music video for their latest single, Dancing in Circles.
Kristin Barlowe, who also directed the video for the band's Top 10 hit single, Runaway, was at the helm again for a video of hope and peace in a dark and empty world.
Filming had a few surprises. While filming, a group of unexpected protesters rallied in the streets holding signs and shouting, "End the Fed!" as they passed through the background. The crew frantically attempted to capture this ironic event.
The video can be seen on TV and online starting Dec. 14.

There's more than that going on though. Gunderson and Liles both sing well, trading leads and harmonizing often with each other (If You ...
What if you held auditions for lead singer within your band and everyone got the job? It happens. All three members of Love and Theft - Brian Bandas, Eric Gunderson, and Stephen Barker Liles - share the vocal duties, acting as each other's backups and plugging in harmonies (think early Eagles) wherever possible. In the wake of a tour opening for Taylor Swift, the pin-up gents from everywhere (Austin by way of Charlotte and Clearwater, Fla.) now venture forth with their debut to the eager ...
