New Come Alive fan video / Added to Jamcruise 15

Hey all!  Check it out:

Watch “Come Alive” Featuring Fan Submitted Content

The Hip Abduction are proud to announce the premiere of their adventure-infused official music video for “Come Alive” on JamBase. Featuring the band’s signature “tropical indie-rock” meets afro-pop sound, “Come Alive” was the first single from The Hip Abduction’s recent release Gold Under the Glow. For the video, the band enlisted fans to submit video clips of themselves doing things that made them feel happy and alive, which could be anything from jumping off a cliff in Costa Rica or taking a walk with Grandma in the park. The official video came together with the help of over 300 fan submissions. Watch the final result HERE.


“’Come Alive’ is about learning to cope with the unknown… It’s crazy that we spend so much of our lives worrying about the past (guilt), or the future (anxiety), that it prevents the present from being fully lived,” The Hip Abduction’s David New (vocals/guitar) tells JamBase. “We thought that a fan video of folks doing whatever makes them feel alive would convey the message perfectly. They did a fabulous job! Our fans are quite the badasses.” He continues, “It was super cool to have this many fans submit videos… the only issue was we couldn’t fit them all in!”

Staying in a tropical theme, The Hip Abduction are also proud to announce that they have been added to the 2017 Jam Cruise lineup. The 15th annual music festival at sea sets sail January 20-25, 2017 and will feature top acts in the live music scene including The Original Meters, moe., GRiZ, Galactic, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and more. Produced by Cloud 9 Adventures, Jam Cruise 15 is already sold out, but fans are able to sign up for the waitlist through jamcruise.com.

Catch The Hip Abduction live across the East Coast this fall including on select tour dates supporting Galactic. 2017 promises to be a big year for the band starting with Jam Cruise and and a confirmed festival play at Sweetwater 420 Fest in April. A full listing of confirmed tour dates is below.

New Music video premiere for ‘Higher’ !

Filmed in the BVI’s, the video is a tropical escape for anyone needing to tap into a little bit of paradise and can appreciate getting off the grid. While filming, there were no phones, no showers, no air conditioners, no grocery stores, and no way to escape the gnarly seas that rocked us in the middle of night. We stayed on an old school 39 foot monohull for 10 days and explored the surrounding islands. Getting of the grid can heal the soul….

Be in our new music video!

We are working on a new music video for Come Alive and you guys are going to star in it!

Here’s how its going to work:

1. Make a video of you or your friends being awesome while Come Alive is playing.  It could be your tribe, friends, family, co-workers… anyone! No time limit set so you could film the entire song or a 10 second clip.  Newer iphones and mobile devices are ok. Androids, GoPro’s, or digital cameras all work. Just make sure to shoot wide landscape (longer left to right), DO NOT SHOOT PORTRAIT ASPECT.

2. Be doing something that makes you happy. You could be jumping off a cliff in costa rica or taking a walk in the local park with little ole Grandma. Whatever! As long as its you being you.

3. Submit all videos to us via dropbox or Google drive by July 31st. Upload specs: 1080p / .mov or .mp4 files. Send dropbox/google link to: mail@thehipabduction.com.

4. Recommendations: Recommend not wearing logo’d clothing or gear. Underwater or near the water videos recommended also.

Please deliver videos in minimum of 1920x1080p pixel dimensions.
Preferred frame rates are 24 FPS and 60 FPS. We will accept any frame rates.
Only shoot in landscape wide aspect ratio. We will not accept any video shot in up-and-down portrait ratio.
Avoid white clothing and any clothing with logos.
Avoid all logos in general.
PLEASE NOTE: We may not be able to fit all submissions in the video.

Thats it!!  Good luck.



The meaning:  Come Alive is about the interpretation of dreams. In my case, one recurring dream led to understanding and how to cope with anxiety…. Eventually becoming free.




What’s it mean to be a dreamer

in the morning light

will it all end soon

will we get out alive

what’s it mean to see the future

in the darkess of night

does it mean something more

should i open my eyes


they all come from the mountains

they all come from the sea

my spirits and dreams are always following me


We are the wolves at play

we are the ones who sing

that youre gonna be okay

and the vibe we bring will feed the light of day

none of the dreams you have can take the world away


whats it mean receiver

of subconsciousnes

should we close up the door should we open the rest

whats it mean believer

of wolves at play

should you follow your heart or just lie awake
