|My Own Ghost have released a videoclip to the new single ‘Hope’ from their second album ‘Life On Standby’. The video was filmed and edited by Maanlander (www.maanlander.eu), a Ghent based video company working across numerous channels and categories.

The song evolves around the concept of unfulfilled hopes. In the video the actorsDeborah Knowles and Francis Majerus portray the story of a father who is hiking through the forest and looking for his missing daughter. Although she has been missing for years, he has never given up hope of finding her someday. As he eventually finds her, the encounter doesn’t turn out the way he expected. The now grown up girl has lived in the forest among wild animals for so long, that she has lost all human traits. She doesn’t recognize her father and only sees him as a potential danger. As a result of her wild-life instincts, she attacks him and ends up killing him. It’s a story of high hopes and never giving up but at the same time a reminder, that hopes may lead to a life of make-believe that results in disappointment and pain.
In order to promote the release of the new video, My Own Ghost will play some shows in the UK in February. This stint in the UK will be followed by another tour as support for Pokerface from Russia on their ‘Game On Tour 2018’.
