Tiles release “The Disappearing Floor” video

Progressive rock outfit Tiles have premiered a music video for their track “The Disappearing Floor”, off last year’s Pretending 2 Run (Laser’s Edge). The song features a solo by guitarist Mike Stern. Band guitarist Chris Herin said of working with Stern:

“What a remarkable experience! Mike was so easygoing and dedicated to delivering his best. It was very late and he had just flown in from Montana, but he was totally up for the session. We already had a great solo completed, but Mike said, ‘Do you mind if I do one more pass, just for fun?’ And he nailed what you hear (and see). It’s hard to believe he surpassed what we already had! It was such a thrill to experience that level of musicianship and artistry up close.”

The clip was shot in a historic industrial park in the downtown area of their native Detroit, MI.

In other news, Pretending 2 Run has been nominated for two Detroit Music Awards – “Outstanding National Small/Independent Label Recording” and “Outstanding Video/Limited Budget” for the song “Weightless”.
