“Colorado-based Elephant Revival believes strongly in the interconnectedness of all living things, which has inspired them to take a stand,” says a press release for the band’s new video, “When I Fall.” The imagery is simple — a family walking though a stunning if bleak landscape. But the message meant to “raise awareness and understanding of the current refugee and immigrant crisis happening around the world and in our own country,” is palpable.

The group is currently on tour for new album Petals and will perform at the New Mountain amphitheater on Friday, Oct. 7. Ben Sollee opens the show. 7 p.m. $18 advance/$23 day of show.
