Daughters’ return to the road is imminent, but before the band begins their Winter tour, the Providence-born outfit release their third video from the highly-praised album, You Won’t Get What You Want, debuting a clip for “Guest House”.
The A.F.Cortes directed video for “Guest House” continues Daughters’ exploration into the world of black and white photography and film. Both of the band’s previously released videos from You Won’t Get What You Want, “City Song” (https://youtu.be/KqntnTfFcHE) and “Less Sex” (https://youtu.be/534uNzGoR1s), used the color-free palette to create stunning, thought-provoking pieces that played on darkness and light, shadows and shading, to impart a variety of emotions, from the magic of a flickering candle to the beauty of the human form, and with “Guest House,” the exploration of psychological tension.
It is always exciting to see our work interpreted by talented artists. We first became familiar with Andres through his wonderful photographic work. His ability to capture unique moments, often missed by other photographers, is uncanny and we trusted him to be able to bring the same abilities as a director.
The “Guest House” video arrives as the band launches a three-week North American tour, kicking off the trek this Saturday with a sold out show at Neumos in Seattle. The tour follows two prior sold out North American outings, a nod to the band’s riveting, and intimate, live performances.

Daughters is vocalist Alexis Marshall, guitar player Nick Sadler, drummer Jon Syverson and bass player Sam Walker. Following the release of their 2010 self-titled album, the band took an indefinite hiatus, returning in 2013 for a pair of sold out hometown shows in Providence, and a subsequent smattering of live dates in the intervening years, including joining Dillinger Escape Plan for that band’s final live outings in December of 2017. The foursome released You Won’t Get What You Want in October of 2018 via Ipecac Recordings. The 11-song collection quickly became one of the year’s most well-received albums, with fans and critics worldwide marveling at Daughters’ bold return. In addition to praise and year end accolades from Stateside outlets like Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Revolver, Brooklyn Vegan and others, Canada’s Exclaim Magazine said the album is “By far their most dynamic offering, Daughters have pulled off one of the great comeback albums and further cemented themselves as a band with such singular creativity that they're nearly peerless.” Classic Rock (UK) echoed those thoughts, saying “Daughters have never sounded so strong and they’ve never got it so right.”
