School Of Seven Bells - "I Got Knocked Down But I'll Get Up" video

Yesterday, we heard School Of Seven Bells’ cover of Joey Ramone’s “I Got Knocked Down (But I’ll Get Up),” a track that Benjamin Curtis, the group’s late production mastermind, put together in his hospital bed while he was dying of lymphoma. Curtis died late last year, and his bandmate Alejandra Dehaza has paid him tribute by making a contemplative, elegiac video for the song, visiting deserts and beaches and desolate towns and forests, staring off into infinity all the while. Tony Halbrooks and Alan Del Rio Ortiz directed the video, and it’s a beautiful and deeply sad piece of work. Watch it at Culture Collide.

The song is available now at iTunes. Also, there’s reportedly a final School Of Seven Bells album on the way, one that Curtis started putting together before his death and Dehaza finished afterward.
