Virginia brothers Pontiak are stoked to release the brand new video for their snarling, fuzz scorched “Ignorance Makes Me High.” Shot by the band, using high-definition drone footage, the video is your first chance to get a glimpse of Pontiak ahead of their EU tour this Spring.
The brothers of Pontiak (Lain, Van, and Jennings Carney) grew up and live on farms in rural Virginia. Dialectic of Ignorance’s expansive structures echo the rugged, hazy climbs of this Blue Ridge Mountain setting, but don’t be fooled; this is no mere collection of pastoral instrumental landscapes. Having opened their own brewery, Pen Druid Brewing in August 2015, the Carney brothers have had the opportunity to reassess their creative process through brewing. The lessons learned from this experimentation have had a formative effect on the both the process underlying and subsequent sound of Dialectic of Ignorance.
