New York, NY – 14 September 2016 – Still reeling from a summer tour with Beach Houseand in preparation for the release of his latest EP Promises (Thrill Jockey), ENTRANCE(Guy Blakeslee) has revealed an animated video for the title track.  Inspired by Stephen Hawking, both the song and video focus on the Hawking's time travel theory – the universal experience we have coping with time’s destructive and constructive powers and mythology.

The video was created and directed by Rozalina Burkova, a Bulgarian born London-based illustrator and GIF maker who recently concluded an art residency at the Croatian Island of Obonjan.  She is currently preparing a solo exhibition and setting up an illustration collective.

"Two years ago I used some of [ENTRANCE's] lyrics for my own project so I am super happy now that the circle has closed and he gets to use my drawing for his music," Burkova said.

In step with the release of the Promises EP, out September 16th on Thrill Jockey, ENTRANCE is hitting the road for a short run of East and West Coast shows before spending the fall months touring Europe with fellow blues connoisseur Scott Fagan.
