.....In all things sublimed from an aspects of a cycle, we are all fluid and move through phases of humidity. When the heat effects the morass of the pool that is trapped below in eddies and still ponds, things be gin to...evaporate, eventually steaming. Rising up in swirls of vapor and movement, impossible without the original pools we all inhabited, we begin to form clouds, complex nearly living entities that are dynamic and ever shifting. One day when the coalescence is complete, we will drop as rain back into the earth where we came from. It is a cycle, and it is beautiful! LYF

....."The Seeker" is a feature length film written by Cloud Cult and directed by Jeff D. Johnson. The film stars Alex McKenna and Josh Radnor, and the music is written and performed by Cloud Cult. "The Seeker" is a story of Grace, a daughter whose idyllic life is turned upside-down by immense tragedy.

"No Hell" is the first single to be released from Cloud Cult's forthcoming album "The Seeker", due out in February of 2016.
The official music video for this song will be released in December, but in the meantime, we thought it would be fun to make a quick homemade behind-the-scenes lyric video, shot lo-fi on a phone and inviting you to the sacred places of our woods where most of these songs are written.
If you enjoy the song, consider preordering "The Seeker" album and movie written by Cloud Cult and starring Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother) and Alex McKenna (WhatWomen Want). Directed and produced by Jeff D. Johnson.

.....ICloud Cult's new feature-length concert film, "Unplug - Live at the Southern Theater" will be released nationally on May 1, 2015. Preorders of the film are available at http://cloudcult.com/cloud-cult-films.
The Film is a distillation; twelve years of songwriting into seventy minutes of acoustic performance. What remains is a shared experience of honesty and vulnerability.
The songs took collective shape around campfires at the band's recording studio in the woods of Wisconsin and took stage at the Southern Theater in Minneapolis where the concert footage was shot, along with interviews and behind the scenes footage.
Co-produced by Jeff D. Johnson (Motion 117 Productions) and Craig Minowa, the film is product of an eight-year collaborative relationship- one that has worked to create a space in which band and audience sit side by side.
In anticipation of the film's national release, there will be a screening of "Unplug" on April 30, 2015 at the Riverview Theater in Minneapolis (3800 42nd Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55406). This debut screening will take place at 7pm, with national release on the following day, May 1. The screening will be followed by a Q&A and meet-and-greet with the band and film Director/Producer, Jeff D. Johnson. (All ages, $10). Tickets available at http://unplug-minneapolis.brownpapert...
In addition to the coming film, the Cloud Cult Unplug concert experience is already available in album format as CD or digital download from the band's website.
