Watch Dave Sampson's new video for "Rumours & The Truth"

Today at The Coast, you can watch the new video for Dave Sampson's "Rumours & The Truth," a song from his album, which will be released in the fall. Unlike his last video, "Fireflies," there isn't a cute kitty in this one, but it does feature the Holy Angels High School gym. The video was shot by Matt Barkely (Bad Fun Media) in Sydney during East Coast Music Week

Co-written with Grammy-winner Gordie Sampson and singer Eric Stephen Martin, "The song is about how quickly rumours and stories spread through small towns and how these stories slowly become fabricated until it's basically bullshit," Sampson explains. "And it's hard to differentiate between the rumours and the truth." That small-town habit can cause a lot of pain.

Sampson will perform on June 2 with Ria Mae at The Seahorse. Until then, have a listen to his songs (including his track on Classified's "No Pressure") and watch this latest, moving video.
